Raspberry Pi enthusiasts searching for a project to keep them busy this weekend may be interested in the PassKeeper, Raspberry Pi password storage device equipped with AES encryption. The Pi powered password storage system allows users to store a virtually unlimited number of passwords all securely encrypted and quickly accessible via a master password stored on the RFID Fob key.
Jump over to the official PassKeeper product page for more details on how to build your very own, with complete wiring diagrams provided as well as full instructions on how to set up the encryption and RFID fob.
“The goal of the project is to create the easy to build and use device that allows to store virtually unlimited number of passwords on AES encrypted storage. The storage is encrypted with AES and uses the password that is stored on the RFID FOB key. The wiring is pretty simple, just make sure you have at least 2 inches ( 5 cm ) of wire between components, so you won’t have hard time trying to fit them into the case. The case can be 3D printed using any PLA filament. The STL models are provided in the /case/stl/ folder. Having layers height of 0.15 mm should work, some may try 0.20 for quick print or go thinner for smoother surfaces.”
“Once the device is assembled, you will need to plug it into the USB port of your computer/laptop. When you’ll see the prompt on OLED display ( and yellow LED will be lit )- insert the FOB into the device to unlock the encrypted internal storage. Make sure that you use proper data cable – not just charging cable!. The cable has to be inserted into the data port on the device itself, otherwise the device won’t be able to communicate with the computer properly.”
