Credentials

Objectives

Provide a mean to view and manage credentials that are stored and automatically used to authorize against websites and services so the user doesn't have to remember.

Primary

  • Provide a way to view and clean up stored passwords & auth keys

  • Create identities (ssh keys, kerberos keys...)
  • Look up stored passwords

Secondary

  • Store in the cloud to be reusable on multiple devices

Non-Goals

  • Manual password storage for services/website you don't actually authorize against ("remember passwords for the whole family").
  • cookie storage. Very low level, "managing" really only useful for web developers.

Constraints
