I'm trying to implement a password manager and I want to achieve this behaviour.
- User enters a master password once (eg. when the program is first run) and a key/hash of some sort is derived and stored (from which the original password cannot be recovered)
- User can then choose to store data in the password bank eg.
store --id=myid --data=datatoencrypt. This data is encrypted using AES without having to prompt for a password using the stored key from step 1
At this point the encrypted data stored cannot be recovered without the original password, but new data can be added without the original password
store get --id=myid Please enter your password: ******* The data is: datatoencrypt
I hope this makes sense. Any pointers on how I can achieve this? (I'm guessing a combination of asymmetric and symmetric encryption
