Name        : fpm2
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 0.75
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://als.regnet.cz/fpm2/
Summary     : Password manager with GTK2 GUI
Description :
Figaro's Password Manager 2 is a program that allows you to securely store the
passwords using GTK2 interface. Features include:
- Passwords are encrypted with the AES-256 algorithm.
- Copy passwords or usernames to the clipboard/primary selection.
- If the password is for a web site, FPM2 can keep track of the URLs of your
  login screens and can automatically launch your browser. In this capacity,
  FPM2 acts as a kind of bookmark manager.
- Combine all three features: you can configure FPM2 to bring you to a web
  login screen, copy your username to the clipboard and your password to the
  primary selection, all with a single button click.
- FPM2 also has a password generator that can choose passwords for you. It
  allows you to determine how long the password should be, and what types of
  characters (lower case, upper case, numbers and symbols) should be used.
  You can even have it avoid ambiguous characters such as a capital O or the
  number zero.
- Auto-minimise and/or auto-locking passwords database after configurable time
  to the tray icon.

Update Information:

Update to new upstream release:    Passwords are now encrypted with the AES-256
(old versions used Blowfish) algorithm, and the key for encryption is generated
with PBKDF2 using HMAC-SHA-256 with 8192 iterations.  You can optionally use
two-factor authentication. To decrypt the list of passwords, you must know the
master password and have the key file.
