Welcome back, everyone. In the last video, we went over the notes taking part of adolescent and then this lesson. You will learn what types off password managers exist within recommendation, and you will learn how to use a popular open source password manager called Key Past.
Regarding this topic, I often start with a question
Who likes passwords? I usually do not get a lot of positive answers, but there are elegant solutions that can increase the security of your personal and business digital environment. Password managers are great while you conduct your online investigations, because you're likely to create
numerous different profiles and accounts for various services across the Web.
With a password manager, you will have a secure database, which is unlocked Onley with that one password. That password should be something unique that contains letters, numbers and special characters. If you want to ensure the safety off all your other stored credentials, there are two main types of password managers
online and offline.
I recommend offline, and I will tell you why, by explaining Thebes difference between them on online password Manager, which stores your database on the Internet, is very practical and appealing since it has the ability to sink the past for database toe all the devices over the Internet.
But if something goes wrong with the hosting provider or the place where the dead basis stored,
you're exposing yourself to unnecessary risk. By keeping your password database locally on your computer, you're eliminating the entire attack surface, and that is the reason why I recommend the offline kind. Browser integration is also very important to keep in mind. Will your chosen password manager work with your browser?
And if yes, how on where are your password stored?
The thing is that we humans will probably always choose ease of use over security or a safer way. The pastor manager that I use, which is open source and well documented on the Internet, is key pass.
It is a cross platform solution. You can use it on almost any kind of operating system, and it does not synchronize any of its contents to the Internet.
I also use it with my browser as an extension, and I can easily enter passwords into websites without leaving the browser. Let me show you how it works so far up your terminal.
First, we need to add the correct repository, so type this command pseudo space apt minus add minus repository
space. BP A column. J. Taylor
Typing the pseudo
enter to continue.
Wait a few moments
when it's finished. We need to update its database off what packages can be installed and where to install them from
so type again. Pseudo
press space of update and enter.
Now that the key past repository is available,
the apt minus get command will be able to install key pass, so to install it, type pseudo
minus get space Install
space Key pass to
Sorry about that
press. Yes, to continue.
Wait a few moments and when it's done, the key pass app should be available.
Okay, Now, when it's done, we should check in our Lennox dash bird. In my case, we are on a bun, too. So in the Bunches dashboard,
here it is,
and we're going to run it.
When you open up the app, the first thing you need to do is to create a new database to to have something to fill with your credential. Select
Now we have to pick a place. Where you going? To save it.
I'm going to do desktop
And now, after that were prompted to create a master password for that database. As I have previously mentioned, that password should be something unique that contains letters, numbers and special characters. If you want to ensure the safety off all your other stores credentials, I will not make a pass for like this right now.
Rather a simple one, because we are on Lee testing the app showing how it works.
So I put this password
I typed. Sometimes you need a good password.
Um, all over case without spaces, which actually is not that bad. And as a side note, please check the latest password recommendations from the U. S. National Institute Off Standards and Technology. I fully agree with the recommendation.
After the master password has been created, you will get a reminder to basically write that password down somewhere. That is a good advice, because there won't be any other way to get into debt debt base if you lose or forget your password.
As you can see here, there are few pre configured groups for saving your credentials will create a new one
with the right click on your group.
We'll call it l sent,
and that new group will add a new entry.
Also right click
Just put in the entry title user name
and you can make your own password. But here is a great feature off the most of the pastor managers have that feature is the ability to generate a password
opened the password generator.
This way you can create a big, complex password and you just have to know the master password in the password generator section of of truth, the length off 40 characters
on DSO They include spaces and okay,
Now the password has been typed in by the pastor manager. And when you click on this three horizontal three dots, you can see what it is. Then you can just copy paste that password when you will require to use it somewhere.
Finally saved the database and that's it. We're gonna exit
now when you run the app again,
keep us will open the last database
you used and immediately ask you for the master password we previously created
to sum up in this video we went over password manager. So with little demonstration, how to install and to use a password manager which I previously recommended called Key Pass. And in the next video, we will talk about information. Validation. Is something true or false? Zero or one.
See you there.
