Password Gorilla: a cross-platform password manager

The Password Gorilla helps you manage your logins. It stores all your user names and passwords, along with login information and other notes, in a securely encrypted file. A single master password is used to protect the file. This way, you only need to remember the single master password, instead of the many logins that you use.

If you want to log in to a service or Web site, the Password Gorilla copies your user name and password to the clipboard, so that you can easily paste it into your Web browser or other application. Because the password does not appear on the screen, Password Gorilla is safe to use in the presence of others.

The convenience of Password Gorilla allows you to choose different, non-intuitive passwords for each service. An integrated random password generator can provide one-time passwords, tunable to various services policies.

Password Gorilla is a Tcl/Tk application which can run on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. The source files written are supposed to be compatible between platforms. They are tested to run on Linux kernel <=, Windows XP, Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.6.x/Lion So it is possible to work with this password manager in heterogenous environments. The Password Gorilla generated database is besides compatible to actual Password Safe 3.2 databases. The password is SHA256 protected and the database contents are encrypted with Bruce Schneier's Twofish algorithm. Brute force attacks are prevented by key stretching.

A help file (English) is integrated.

2013-10-23 – MacOS Maverick news:
It seems that to launch the Mac Gorilla bundle under the new MacOS Maverick that one first needs to perform the following steps:

 1) Right click on the Password and click “Get Info”
 2) Turn on the checkmark to “Open in 32-bit mode”

Thanks go to @maxgladwell for this tip on how to launch under the new MacOS.
