Hi

It will be great if you can add the latest keepass version in Tais or any 2.x version as it i more secure.

Thanks

History

#1 Updated by kytv over 2 years ago

The latest stable version of KeepassX is 0.4.3. Version 2.0 is in alpha.

As for Keepass, the differences between 1.x and 2.x are shown here. (Of course I realize that Keepass 1.x and KeepassX are different.) Note that Keepass2 requires Mono which would pull in a lot of new dependencies which would only be used by Keepass2. Keepass2 would also need relaxed firewall rules; you can see this for yourself by installing Keepass2 and looking at the denials logged in /var/log/syslog.

Also, Keepassx2 is not in Debian (and nobody would care to package something in alpha state). So pamamolf, if you want to suggest other packages, read that first: https://tails.boum.org/support/faq#index24h2

BitingBird: there is not such think as KeePassX2. It's either KeePassX (v0.4.3 in Jessie) or KeePass 2 (v2.28 in Jessie).

I'm not sure why we chose KeePassX instead of KeePass 2 in Tails, but I'm pretty much convinced by the arguments provided by kytv.

Yes, there is. It's still alpha software, though: https://www.keepassx.org/
