Yum Install KeepassX

KeepassX is a secure way of storing sensitive data like credit card info, username and passwords. It was originally built for Windows and now is a cross-platform application hence the 'X'. It is quite secure due to its db file encryption with a 256-bit key. More info can be found here - http://www.keepassx.org/.

Okay, since it is cross-platform Fedora repo naturally has it. So to install, simply do the following.

yum install keepassx

Now, you can share the database file (*.kdb) to DropBox or GoogleDrive, then separately share the key. This way, you can securely share sensitive info and collaboratively change it. Cool?

For CentOS or RHEL, add the EPEL repo and do the same thing above but they are operating systems that are not meant for desktop use anyway.
