Citizen Card Plugin for KeePass

KeePass is a free password manager. It can protect your passwords using a master password, a key file, or by binding it to the Windows account.

This A-SIT plugin extends the functionality of KeePass. It adds support for the Austrian Citizen Card (Ecard G2 & G3 cards, ACOS cards). With this plugin you can use your Citizen Card to protect your password database. This plugin generates a random key and encrypts it with the Citizen Card. Every time the database is unlocked the plugin will decrypt the key using your smartcard and pin. Additionally you can use a password or bind the database to your Windows account to further increase the security.
