autoID Password Manager

2.0.1
10 June 2009

Password manager, uses strong encryption.

Overview

Note: autoID Password Manager is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

autoID Password Manager uses 448 bit encryption and can type login information for you automatically. Basic auto-complete is also provided. autoID can be used to track names, passwords, credit cards, software serial numbers and confidential notes in an encrypted form. The password you assign to a file is the only key to retrieving its contents back. If you forget the password to a file, you might as well forget you ever had the file. There is no way to get it back.

In exchange for remembering one password, autoID will keep track of your important notes and passwords and it can even enter them for you automatically when you visit Web sites that ask for a login name/password combination.

When you are on the Web and come up to a site that requires you to log in, click on the name field and then press Option-Command-/ (Option-Command and Slash) at the same time. autoID will look up the current Web page name in your most current autoID file and if a Web address partially matches an entry in the Web Link field of a record, the name and password will be entered for you automatically. No more passwords to remember! OK, except for the password to your autoID file... but that is only one password.

For example, a Web Link field that has "yahoo.com" will match the Web page for http://www.yahoo.com. If you have several logins in similar sites you may want to be more specific by having more detailed Web Link fields such as http://mail.yahoo.com or mail.yahoo.com

If the current Web site is not in your passwords file autoID can instead enter your name and address information. Please set your Preferences for this.

How do I press Option-Command-/? Hold down the option key, then the Command (or Apple key, which is right next to the option key) and while still holding down those two keys press the forward slash (/) key. When you get good at it you actually press option and command with one finger.

At the time of this writing, autoID works correctly with the following browsers: Safari, Internet Explorer, OmniWeb, iCab, Mozilla, Firefox and Netscape.

How secure is my data? autoID encrypts the contents of your file with a password supplied by you. Without this password the data cannot be obtained again or "decrypted". autoID uses an industry standard encryption algorithm called Blowfish, we use a 48-bit key at a minumum and 448-bit key as a maximum. The longer your password the bigger the key and the more secure the data is. The thing is, if you forget this password, we cannot get your data back. That is the purpose of this software...to keep things secret. The good news is that by remembering one password, you have secure access to many others besides notes and other things.

WAAAY TOO Complicated! Or should I say time consuming... In the time it takes to activate a site in auto id, and the amount of clicks and entering the encripted password(s), I can just simply type the damn password! Pretty useless...

There is a problem which is a bug in Leopard that makes autoID think that it has not been registered and works in trial mode for 15 days. Someone created a small installer package that fixes the problem and makes autoID work again (and other eSellerate based programs). The package, which came from https://spaces.umbc.edu/display/CIG/Web-based+VPN+on+Mac+OS+X+Leopard After running that installer you can run autoID again with no problems. Thank you to Steve Smith for finding this and thank you for your patience. P.S. If you also have Safari Extender we are working on the issues as Safari changed a lot in the Leopard version, note that you still need the fix enclosed to make the eSellerate libraries work. Safari Extender does not seem to do anything under Leopard OS X 10.5, and Tiger 10.4.11 We are working on it, we could not support beta versions of Safari and we had to wait until the final version was available. Safari Extender is a very complicated piece of software and Safari has changed substantially so we need time to do things right. The features in Safari Extender may change for the Leopard compatible release. thankzzz Ricardo

Tried autoID, like the concept and the program seems to work fine, but there is a major annoyance: After restart there are Recovered Files in Trash. I've seen the same problem with other programs that use the eSellerate engine. This is an old problem that was fixed long time ago by eSellerate and should not appear in autoID.

The beaty of autoID is that once you set a web page (autoid grabs the web link automatically) you only need to press option-command-/ and your id and password are entered in the web page. For sites that require a third field, a notes entry is used for it. autoID keeps your data secret and the file can be moved around. You can have multiple macs and use a copy of the file in them without having to re-train safari or any other browser. If you ever need to re-install a system or Safari, you don't loose your data. When you start having 30+ passwords for web sites, autoID becomes a life saver.

For anyone that doesn't know; Safari can store passwords/logins and other form fields for you. It stores them in the MacOS X keychain, so you can be sure they're nice and secure. FireFox has a password manager but without knowing if it stores the passwords in the OSX keychain or uses its own thing, I don't trust it. Either way, check your browser's preferences. Form auto-fill and password management are pretty standard these days. No need for after-market apps.

I too have found this difficult to use and the documentation limited. There must be something more user friendly out there......

Ok, I might becoming blind with age, but as far as I can see fort knox is a windows app. If so, dear JG, it is like handing me a poetry book in Japanese. A fine language, but I cant read it.
