SherPass is a program to manage passwords, both for web sites and SSH access.
It uses the GNU Privacy Guard to PGP-encrypt login/password entries. By encrypting an entry with possibly multiple persons' public keys, several people will be able to obtain access to the password entry, each using his own private key. This allows password information for hosts or websites to be shared among several people, without needing a single master key.
To manage passwords, download the standalone program for your operating system. To be able to use passwords in web pages more easily, you can use
The manual explains how both the standalone program and the bookmarklet/extension can be used.
Installable packages for various platforms:

The main SherPass program works with two directories:
By using shared directories for this (e.g. using a shared filesystem like NFS, or something like Dropbox), this makes a shared password system possible. In this system each person can still have his own private key and passphrase, no globally known password or key is necessary.
