I want my kids, my wife and I to stop using passwords (especially common passwords shared across services). I’m worrying about password managers that can a) make me lose all passwords easily (i.e. no encrypted backups offsite) and b) services that may be compromised or abused by NSA & friends.
I’m now prepared to host all my personal data and media at home (personal NAS), and I plan to do encrypted backups offsite of all data to be safe. Locally, I’d like to integrate a password manager (service), so in theory passwords would only exist on our living room server.
Which combination of a password manager and a physical security key should we use that are all of:
- convenient to use (e.g. easily integrated in all major web browsers and hardwares - phones, notebooks)
- cross-platform (e.g. working on PureOS, Ubuntu, etc. - I don’t care much about macOS and Windows)
- works when the service is offline (e.g. caches the database in a local app or so)
- obviously integrates the password management service and the hardware security key (e.g. unlock master password with hardware key only)
I’m looking for an answer like: (seriously!)
“Take a YubiKey and LastPass, because that’s the best in terms of libre hardware and libre software, bla-bla-blah, endorsed by the FSF, bla-bla-blah, even Richard Stallman uses the same setup, and the Librem 5 will support …”
Thanks in advance for any hints and helpful thoughts!
