In my job I have a number of username/passwords to various websites and machines that I must keep track of. I was soliciting ideas on how to store these passwords securely. Encrypting them with a passphrase seems counterproductive since the file may not be accessed for a while and the passphrase might be forgotten. Would biometrics be a safer idea? What security methods do you use to secure a list such as this?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.


I came across this while looking at another app from a different thread (E4M). Probably not what you want, but it might work for someone else.
