Project 4-1: Download and Install a Password Storage Program The drawback to using strong passwords is that they can be very difficult to remember, particularly when a unique password is used for each account that a user has. As an option there are several password storage programs that allow the user to enter account information such as username and password. These programs are themselves then protected by a single strong password. One example of a password storage program is KeePass Password Safe, which is an open source product. In this project you download and install KeePass. 1. Use your Web browser to go to keepass.info and click on Downloads. It is not unusual for Web sites to change the location of where files are stored. If the URL above no longer functions then open a search engine like Google and search for ‘‘KeePass’’. 2. Locate the portable version of KeePass and click it to download the application. Save this file in a location such as your Desktop, or a folder designated by your instructor, or your portable USB flash drive. When the file finishes downloading install the program. Accept the installation defaults. Because this is the portable version of KeePass it does not install under Windows. In order to use it you must double-click the filename KeePass.exe. 3. Launch KeePass to display the opening screen, as shown in Figure 4-13. 4. Click File and New to start a password database. Enter a strong master password for the database to protect all of the passwords in it. When prompted enter the password again to confirm it. 5. Click Edit and Add Entry. You will enter information about an online account that has a password that you already use. 6. Under Group: select an appropriate group for this account. 7. Enter a title for this account under Title:. 8. Under User name: enter the username that you use to login to this account. 9. Erase the entries under Password: and Repeat: and enter the password that you use for this account and confirm it. 10. Enter the URL for this account under URL:. 11. Click OK. 12. Click File and Save. Enter your last name as the filename and click Save. 13. Exit KeePass. 14. If necessary navigate to the location of KeePass and double-click the file KeePass.exe to launch the application. 15. Enter your master password to open it. 16. If necessary, click the group to locate the account you just entered; it will be displayed in the right pane. 17. Double-click under URL to go to that Web site. 18. Click KeePass in the task bar so that the window is now on top of your browser window. 19. Drag your username from KeePass into the login username box for this account in your Web browser and drop it into the login box. 20. Drag and drop your password from KeePass for this account. 21. Click the button on your browser to log in to this account. 22. Because you can drag and drop your account information from KeePass you do not have to memorize any account passwords and can instead create strong passwords for each account. Is this an application that would help users create and use strong passwords? What are the strengths of these password programs? What are the weaknesses? Would you use KeePass? 23. Close all windows.
