Cute Android: Open Source Android Apps for Developers: KeePassDroid (Android Implemention of the KeePass Password Manager)

Description
KeePassDroid is an open source Android application which is the implementation of the KeePass Password Safe for the Android platform. Or KeePassDroid is a port of the KeePass Password safe for the Android platform.

KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).

More about keePass
According to the utility’s author, KeePass was one of the first password management utilities to use security-enhanced password edit controls, in this case one called CSecureEditEx. The author makes several claims regarding the security of the control and its resistance to password revealing utilities; however, the author does not cite or make any references to any third-party testing of the control to corroborate the claims of its security. The software can be tested, since the source code is freely available.

Access to the database is restricted by either a master password or a key file. Both methods may be combined to create a “composite master key”. If both methods are used, then both must be present to access the password database. KeePass version 2.x will introduce a third option: dependency upon the current Windows user. KeePass encrypts the database with the AES or Twofish symmetric ciphers. AES is the default option, and Twofish is available in 1.x, but will not be available in version 2.x.

Passwords are protected in memory while KeePass is running. On Windows Vista and Windows 7, passwords are encrypted in process memory using Windows Data protection API, which allows storing the key for memory protection in a secure, non-swappable memory area. On previous Windows systems, KeePass falls back to using the ARC4 cipher with a temporary, random session key.
