How to secure your passwords with keepass


What is KeePass

KeePass is a free and free password manager. It allows you to create an encrypted database in order
to store a set of passwords in a secure way. The database is in the form of a .kdbx file which
can only be opened via the KeePass software if you enter a master password. The user therefore
only has one password to know to access all these other passwords.

KeePass uses AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption by default.
This is a robust and reliable standard in the world of data encryption, it is also the encryption
system used by the US government

Create a database with KeePass


Step 1

You can, if you wish, go through the options using the different tabs.

Tab Security

This tab gives you access to the choice of the encryption algorithm of your database. It also provides access to key
transformation settings. When you enter your password to open your database, it will be transformed a certain number of times.
The higher the number of transformations, the longer the processing time. A long processing time will greatly increase
the brute force password cracking time. To give an example, if the processing time lasts 0.01s, it will be possible to test
1000 passwords in 10s. If the processing time is 1s, it will only be possible to test 10.
This processing time will apply to each loading and modification of your database. It is therefore a question of finding a
reasonable compromise between comfort of use and safety.

Tab Compression

This tab gives access to a single option concerning data compression. This is enabled by default.
You will have relatively light files anyway whether they are compressed or not. A database containing a hundred
passwords will weigh less than 50Kb.
