Hi guys,

I've written a program to store your passwords secure in a container on a server. It's written for the Horde 
framework and is called eleusis ( http://h4des.org/index.php?inhalt=eleusis ). The idea was to have your passwords 
everytime available when you are online even when you are using an internet cafe or a pc at work.

When the user creates a passwordstore, he must give a masterpassword. With this masterpassword every password you 
want to save will encrypt with blowfish. For every step (reading, writing) you have to enter the masterpassword, 
because nothing will write unencrypted to the hard disk. The masterpassword is never stored. When the user entered 
the masterpassword, the program will decrypt the container and check the header. If the header is correctly 
decrypted, the program will continue its work, if not, it will show you an error message.

The whole project is written in php. A weak point of the program is the http protocol. When the user doesn't use 
https to transfer the data the passwords will send decrypted over the net.

I hope there is any use for this program and I'm glad if anyone of you send me any critics or suggestions.

Regards
