7 March 2009

Password Safe 3.16.2Y has been released and may be downloaded from here. This is a "branch" release, with support for the YubiKey authentication token. YubiKey is a USB authentication device that sends a different authentication key each time it's activated. This provides a convenient alternative to constantly typing in a passphrase for heavy users of PasswordSafe. To use, just "associate" your YubiKey with your PasswordSafe database, using the new Manage->YubiKey dialog. For more details, please refer to the online help. Currently, support for this device is implemented in a separate PasswordSafe package. Your feedback will determine if and how this will be merged into the main product.

You can purchase YubiKey devices from here.
