How does it work?
Titan runs on the command line. It's not meant to hold your hand, however Titan comes with a manual page.
Titan is more than just a password manager, since version 1.2 Titan also supports encrypting individual files and directories.
Latest changes are available in the NEWS file.
Titan uses OpenSSL library to perform the encryption. AES encryption is used with 256 bit keys. Password database is also protected from tampering by using a keyed-hash message autentication code (HMAC). Unique, cryptographically random initialization vector is used during the encryption. New initialization vector is generated each time the password database is encrypted.
For key derivation, PKCS5_PBKDF2_HMAC is used along with salt and SHA256 hash algoritm.
Titan uses SQlite for storing the passwords. Database schema is simple and easy to make compatible with other password managers.
Titan is available on Github.
To install Titan from the source code, for example, on Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install libsqlite3-dev sudo apt-get install libssl-dev cd titan-directory make sudo make install
Documentation and support
For documentation see titan --help and man titan(1).
There's also an IRC support channel #titanpasswordmanager@Freenode. Welcome.
Simple examples how to use Titan:
Create a new database: titan --init /home/niko/passwords.db Add new password entry, interactively titan --add Encrypt the database titan --encrypt To view entries in the database titan --decrypt /home/niko/passwords.db titan --list-all Or try to search for entries titan --find "My search" After working with the decrypted database, remember to encrypt it titan --encrypt See man titan(1) or titan --help for more information.
