Console Password Manager

cpm (Console Password Manager) is a small console tool to manage passwords and other sensitive data and store them in a public-key encrypted file. It also allows you to configure the whole hierarchy yourself, so it's easily adoptable for many requirements. The encryption is handled through GnuPG, and the data inside is stored as XML.

    Release Notes: A minor bug with no security effects was fixed. In the event that the GPG secret key of the user contained a comment, cpm displayed a warning message on program exit. This should now be fixed.
