In our first look at KeePass, we showed you how to set one master password to securely rule all of your passwords. As long as you remember your master password.

I want to start using a Keepass master password that I can easily remember. Let's take this sentence: I really hate blue mountains, and let's make it one password.
I will probably get flamed for this `stupid' question but here goes: I really dislike typing my 13 character strong master password each time I run Keepass. I wonder if there is a convenient alternative, that does not completely compromise my security? For instance, in XP I can create a keepass shortcut, with a command line that includes the password. Alternately I can create a compiled autohotkey executable that contains this command line. Or alternately, I can use Keepass's keyfile option instead of a master passord. In all these cases, Im told it aint hard for spyware to locate the shortcut the executable, or the keyfile, using access times. If I use a shortcut, the spyware gets the password.
If I use an executable, the spyware can grab it and open keepass with it. If I use the keyfile, again the spyware can grab it along with the database. Any other way to access keepass `conveniently' without compromising security horribly? Perhaps if I changed all the filenames of keepass and used a keyfile, spyware would need to know I was actually using keepass, to grab and use all the files correctly?
Using a usb stick does not help, since spyware can grab its files, while it is being used. H-Man 05.10.11 13:40. Rather than using what most consider a password I use a phrase instead. For something in your 13 character password length I would use something like; '3 #'s of hash' but rather than limit oneself to just 13 characters it is easier for most people to use a complete sentence as well as making it harder a little harder to break. Something like 'I lost 2 of them but who's counting!' With or without space characters.
True you still have to type in the password but with a little practice a sentence seems to go faster and with out the need to remember a random group of characters. W4tch3r 06.10.11 17:24.

Nice idea, but it is SO SO easy for spyware to find a keyfile, if spyware monitored the computer at all, they would find the keyfile easily. And when I deleted it each time, I would have to use some kind of secure overwrite delete. A terribly sneaky spyware trick is to transmit every alphanumeric sequence on your hard disk - including files deleted in the ordinary way. Then they just do a dictionear attack, with a few thousand possibilities. Ron May 07. Cyber Facebook Hack Serial Key. 10.11 4:50.

I was anyway. In which case the issue is the database uses a symmetric password, and what is the mathematical probability of a brute force attack working within a sensible timeframe, considering the timeframe could be quite long if it's nicked without you knowing by spyware or even God forbid from online storage. That's an issue. From what I've read recently, the passphrase approach seems easier, and much tougher. POKO 07.10.11 14:49. Ron May wrote in: >You may be overthinking this too much.
