Password Manager Software

Hi, we are reviewing our password manager software and would like to know which software our DataSHIELD users would recommend?

Thanks for your help.



I would recommend Keycloak, it is a complete, secure and free solution. Opal can perform authentication using a Keycloak server by registering it as an Identity Provider. Then use a Personal Access Token to authenticate in scripts (note: requires the upcoming version 6 of DataSHIELD, based on DSI).


Hi Yannick,

Thanks for your feedback. We are looking at sites with different functionality however e.g. Dashlane and Lastpass, to actively manage passwords within the group.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Best wishes, Elaine

Ah sorry I thought you were talking about the server side… Personally I use Keepass, it’s free and open source.
