iOS password manager comparison

Postby malcarada » Wed Apr 25, 2012 4:32 pm

I don't know if you are aware of the research that a computer security group called Elcomsoft carried out into some iOS password managers, their white paper claimed that most of the 17 password managers they looked into were not safe because the developers made mistakes like storing the masterpassword MD5 inthe database or did not salt the masterpassword which allowed for building of rainbow tables and crack it quickly, they estimated how long it would take to crack it using GPU (Graphics Processing Unit).

I am just posting this to make you aware of it and make sure that StickyPassword does not fall for any of those mistakes, unfortunately they did not review StickyPassword.

This is the Black Hat presentation paper in case you haven't seen it: http://www.elcomsoft.com/WP/BH-EU-2012.pdf
