Password Database

Hi guys,

I wonder if you can help me with with this one. I work as an Operations Technician in a medium sized IT company in the Channel Isles and we look after a number of clients and provide Managed Services for them along with other IT related issues.

We have a password database with all the clients usernames & passwords for each of their individual servers for when we need to log onto them to do any maintenance, patching or ad-hoc issues.

This password database is now starting to get all messy with all usernames and passwords that are no longer used along with clients that we don't provide IT support for anymore.

My question is I want to re-do the password database and get rid off all the usernames that are no longer in use and all other stuff so it looks professional and clutter free and I was wondering is there any apps that I could use or maybe build a secure internal Website so that our Service Desk, 2nd and 3rd line Engineers can access?

Thank in advance.

    What technology are you currently using? Is this "database" an encrypted XLS file? A .txt file on a server somewhere w/ only root privileges? A Postgres DB w/ restricted privileges?

    I'm going to be looking into Hashicorp' Vault soon: https://www.vaultproject.io/intro . However, I'm mostly interested in using this for my scripts and programs to interact with. It could be an easy way of securely logging into resources programmatically without using plaintext (at least, that's the impression I get).


    You could also use something like 1Password https://agilebits.com/onepassword or KeePass/KeePassX: https://www.keepassx.org/ KeePass Password Safe
    They each provide shared password vaults that can be shared amongst a team, or used individually.

    I've been using Password Safe for years, and it's great! I've used it both locally and across a shared drive. It was created by Bruce Schneier.

    Thanks for your suggestions guys. I think i'll look into KeyPass as it looks like the perfect database i'm looking for.

    The best product on the market now is a Quest (Dell) product called TPAM. It is great for privileged account management.

    Do you know how much this costs?

    What makes Quest so good?
