Name        : keepassx
Product     : Fedora 24
Version     : 0.4.4
Release     : 1.fc24
URL         : http://keepassx.sourceforge.net
Summary     : Cross-platform password manager
Description :
KeePassX is an application for people with extremly high demands on secure
personal data management.
KeePassX saves many different information e.g. user names, passwords, urls,
attachemts and comments in one single database. For a better management
user-defined titles and icons can be specified for each single entry.
Furthermore the entries are sorted in groups, which are customizable as well.
The integrated search function allows to search in a single group or the
complete database.
KeePassX offers a little utility for secure password generation. The password
generator is very customizable, fast and easy to use. Especially someone who
generates passwords frequently will appreciate this feature.
The complete database is always encrypted either with AES (alias Rijndael) or
Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key. Therefore the saved
information can be considered as quite safe. KeePassX uses a database format
that is compatible with KeePass Password Safe for MS Windows.
