Executive Summary

This package is a very paranoid password manager. It consists of two parts: a front-end command-line interface, and a back-end library (which can be used to create prettier interfaces).

It is important to note that there is no password recovery service. If you enter an incorrect master password, you will simply get incorrect passwords from the database. This is by design. It makes the password database much more resistant to a brute-force attack. DON'T FORGET YOUR MASTER PASSWORD.

Once installed, the program can be run by typing passman in your terminal.


This package uses Haskell Stack. Please refer to their website for instructions on installing Haskell Stack. Once you have done this, you can simply enter the command stack install passman in the terminal to install passman.


The most recent version of passman can be found on GitHub at https://github.com/jlamothe/passman.
