PassPocket is a password manager for the Amiga. It stores all your different
user names, passwords, and associated website addresses in a single database,
encrypted with a single master password.
Now you only need to remember that one password, so you can make all the
other passwords as long and unmnemonic as the security experts recommend,
have as many of them as you need for all those websites where you have to
register but rarely visit, and change them as often as advised, without the
hassle of trying to keep track of them all.
PassPocket also makes it easy to use the contents of the database. It acts as
an Amiga commodity, running invisibly in the background and called to life
by programmable hotkeys. Just use a hotkey to open a listing of the database
and select the site you want to visit. Then use the other hotkeys to enter
the website address, user name, and password into a web browser or other
program just as if you'd typed them.
o Supports up to nine different databases, so each member of the family can
have their own, or you can have one for work and one for personal use.
Just enter the appropriate master password, and PassPocket opens the
o Databases are encrypted with the Twofish encryption algorithm, using master
passwords of up to 16 characters (128 bits).
o Databases can hold an unlimited number of entries. In addition to the user
name, password, and website address, you can enter short notes pertaining
to the site.
o As a commodity it's completely integrated into the OS, so it will work with
any program- no hacks or patches are required. There is no need to paste
data from the clipboard, as on other platforms.
o Uses MUI for its user interface, and can open on any public screen for easy
integration with web browsers or other applications.
o A secure password generator is provided, to easily create a never-ending
series of random passwords if you get tired of inventing your own. The
generator may be configured according to the password requirements of each
o Databases may be exported to and imported from comma separated value (CSV)
files in the format used by the open-source KeePass password manager. This
allows databases to be synchronized with password managers on other
platforms such as Windows.
o Databases may be automatically backed up when saved, even to a different
storage device for maximum safety.
o Databases may be printed out to create a hard copy.
o Databases may be automatically closed after a period of non-use, to prevent
o Though malware is largely nonexistent on the Amiga, steps are nonetheless
taken to prevent other programs from snooping on passwords stored in RAM
while the program is running.
o It's localized, so it may be adapted to use languages other than English.
Support for German is currently provided.
What's New in v. 1.01
No functional changes have been made to the PassPocket program itself, but
some user contributions that enhance the program have been added.
o Support for the German language is included, courtesy of Helmut Haake. He
provided a German catalog for the program, and translated the guide into
o A set of alternate icons designed for different versions of the Amiga OS
was provided by >>>IconDesigner<<<.
o A change was made to the built-in English language text to correct a minor
cosmetic flaw discovered during testing of the German translation.
Two versions of PassPocket are included. The PPC version is targeted to
AmigaOS 4. The 68K version (68020 or better) is targeted to AmigaOS 3, but
should also run under emulation on MorphOS and AROS.
MUI 3.9 or better is required, as is a recent version of the MCC_TextEditor
MUI class. Some images from AISS will be used if available, but AISS is not
PassPocket is open source. The source code is included, and PassPocket has
been designed to facilitate porting to other Amiga variants.
