Password Tech (formerly PWGen) provides a variety of security tools including a strong random password and data file generator, master password tool, and a text encryption tool.

  • Random number generator - the program can create lists of random characters or pass-phrases from word lists and uses mouse/keyboard activity to gather more entropy. The program includes lots of features to make these passwords easy and conform to any security standard.

  • Master password - lets you create strong passwords using two words, usually a single password with it's destination, creating strong passwords for every site ("email" is unique from "network"). It's an easy way to avoid writing down your passwords but always having them available.

  • Text encryption - draws from any application that supports a text copy/paste to encode (using the cliboard).
For both encryption and password generation, the program uses an open, standard algorithm (AES 256).

@webfork
Why was Gaijin.at Password Generator removed from the database? I have just tested it and it seems to be really portable.

@webfork, ChaCha20 is an encryption algorithm (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salsa20#ChaCha_variant)

I am shocked you don't keep up to date on important features, such as portable password manager security.

V2.42 is available now.

Password Safe is a database for encrypting sensitive information. Once opened with a master password, you can copy a password and paste it directly into your application. Alternatively, Password Safe supports "Auto Type" that enters the username and password into the target application by simulating keystrokes.

The database is encrypted using the Twofish encryption algorithm. A Linux version (currently in Beta) is also available from the website.

Alternatively, X-Password Safe and Password Safe Portable are stealth.

This version does not run on XP. The last version that did is 3.38.02, which can be accessed from sourceforge through the download page on the pwsafe.org site. There was some suggestion last year that 3.40 might be fixed to run on XP, but not so far, it seems

I recommend using KeePass v2 series, because of the flexibility it gives.

Mixture on 2016-03-11 16:17

Since KeePass upgraded to 2.32 and finally has the encryption algorithm plugin, SERPENT, I switched from portable Password Safe 3.38.01 to portable KeePass 2.32 with TwoFish, Serpent, GOST, and Salsa20 encryption algorithm plugins.

@Orca: TPFC is an entirely volunteer site; what you describe is the result of past policy that has since been changed. Feel free to submit a KeePass 2 entry. Or post in the forums calling attention from the moderator team.

Sisma works well but is a bit too basic.
