Yet another hackers attack on the infrastructure of companies that offer to store our passwords begs the question:
Is there a password manager server application? (Along with browser extensions)
That is an application that stores passwords in a personal server (that is publicly accessible), but which is can be connected in a variety of browsers and across many computers.
In essence, a sort of
lastpass service but with the lastpass server running on a personal server, not on the cloud.
The key here is, of course, the decentralization of password storage, which would make it less interesting for hackers to try and breach the security and get access to someone's personal data.
I am using this post as a guide, but it is not clear if even the enterprise solutions are run on personal servers.
Preferably the application should
- be free software and / or open source
- run on a Linux / Unix server
- have extensions for browsers (especially Firefox) across many archs
