GNU gnu-pw-mgr is a password manager designed to make it easy to reconstruct difficult passwords when they are needed, while limiting the risk of attack. The user of this program inputs a very long initial password 'seed' and a self-defined transformation of a web site URL to obtain both the password and a user name hint for that web site. The seed is stored in a hidden file. However, the passwords and the URL transforms are never stored anywhere. You must remember this transform (password id), or the password is lost forever.


gnu-pw-mgr --tag 'first-seed-tag' --text 'Testing ...'
gnu-pw-mgr --login-id 'user-name' --length 32 \
