Software to store IT/server/router passwords securely?

A decade ago at a previous work place we use some software to store all our IT related passwords.
It was a nice free light-weight program that encrypted all our passwords.

Anyone recommended any free or useful programs to do that? Mac or Windows is fine

Thanks so much!

I use keepass 2. Learned about through ninite (another amazingly useful tool). Save a database per client and only share the master passwords with the techs you need too for each client.

Hi there

A solution i've used before and recommend is KeePass

This will store passwords and encrypt them and has a master password to open it. Hope that helps.

I like STRIP because of the true encryption

Not a direct answer but... assuming you also have AD at your site, why not switch to using radius auth for the devices? That way, each user can log in using their AD credentials, and you can add and remove users from auth groups in AD without having to update each device individually.

I started using PasswordSafe because the people at the current job used it and have hundreds of passwords for various things.  I already have a few of the more important ones memorized, so I only go to it for something that I'm not normally responsible for.

http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/

It's a Windows program, but you can run it easily with WINE on Mac or Linux, as it's a fully self-contained program.

Before that, I kept my own 2 dozen password sequences memorized and used my AD admin account and ssh keys for everything else at another place.
