Collaboration: Updated Online Password List Management

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

LuxSci has re-written its web-based Password management interface from the ground up to provide users with a fast, modern, featureful experience.  The WebAides Passwords user interface now matches that of WebMail, Address Books, Calendars, and User Groups in AJAX-based Web 2.0 speed, data caching, and usability.

The Passwords WebAide provides:

  • PGP-Encrypted online storage for all of the user names, passwords, and related information that most people have in abundance for logging in to countless web sites and devices.  Every entry is separately encrypted using PGP.  The PGP certificates are imported by you and/or generated by LuxSci.  There is no need for the passwords to these PGP keys to ever be stored on LuxSci’ servers.  This is a secure online solution.
  • Shared access — you can have detailed control of who in your account, if anyone, can decrypt and access which passwords.
  • Associated encrypted notes and attachments with each password so that you can store additional related information.

Consider LuxSci’s WebAide Passwords to be an “Online Lockbox” where you can securely store and share all of your passwords.  This Lockbox can be accessed from anywhere that you have Internet access.  The major changes that come along with these user interface enhancements include:
