Abstract

Password management should be simple and follow Unix philosophy. With pass, each secret lives inside of a gpg encrypted file whose filename is the title of the website or resource that requires the secret. These encrypted files may be organized into meaningful folder hierarchies, copied from computer to computer, and, in general, manipulated using standard command line file management utilities. - passwordstore.org

gopass is a rewrite of the pass password manager in Go with the aim of making it cross-platform and adding additional features. Our target audience are professional developers and sysadmins (and especially teams of those) who are well versed with a command line interface. One explicit goal for this project is to make it more approachable to non-technical users. We go by the UNIX philosophy and try to do one thing and do it well, providing a stellar user experience and a sane, simple interface.
