Welcome to Cryptopus

Cryptopus is a Ruby on Rails web application for storing and sharing passwords and other sensitive data. All data is stored encrypted in a database, safe from third party access. A password manager is used to encrypt data and manage users and usergroups.

Cryptopus combines symmetric and asymmetric encryption.

Putting all your passwords in a database accessible over the internet might be a relevant security threat. Most critical for your data's safety is

  • strong root and user passwords (!!)
  • a SSL-secured connection (never use an unecrypted connection!)
  • internal network only access (vpn)

Remember, Cryptopus won't make your passwords more secure. It simply gives you the possibility to manage them in a nice way, store them in a safe manner and share them with other people if you wish to do so.

Under no circumstances can we be held liable for password theft, lost passwords or any other inconvenience caused by using cryptopus.
