Detailed information about abylon KEYSAFE

For what do I need a password safe like abylon KEYSAFE?

The Windows login, various email accounts, forums and web shops or even the EC card require login data, passwords or pins. For security reasons, passwords should be as complex as possible (see e.g. the blog for Strategies for a good password). Because the paper economy is not a solution and only a few real memory world champions are, the password manager abylon KEYSAFE is a way to organize and securely store passwords and access data.

How does the password manager abylon KEYSAFE


The easy-to-use password manager abylon KEYSAFE provides help for the password flood, whereby you only have to remember one password. Alternatively you can also use a USB stick, a CD, a chip card or a certificate (X.509) as "key". All your passwords, PINs, access data, account information and other secret data will be stored in the clear window. The stored data can simply be dragged with the mouse into the corresponding fields of the browser or a dialog (Drag&Drop). The abylon KEYGENERATOR is a practical password generator for generating completely random passwords. To ensure a high level of security, the internationally recognized encryption algorithms AES (256-bit key length) and Blowfish (448-bit key length) are used. Another advantage of the software abylon KEYSAFE is the possibility to create a mobile version on a USB stick. So you always have your passwords with you and can access your passwords and access data on further PC's.
