Password Gorilla is a password manager type application. It manages your login information (sets of a title, user name, password, and notes), and stores it in an encrypted database. A master password is used to protect the file.
Written in pure Tcl, it runs portably on all platforms that Tcl supports. (More beta testers needed, to validate that statement. Especially on the Macintosh.)
Password Gorilla is file compatible with Password Safe , originally developed by Counterpane Labs Counterpane Labs , Bruce Schneier's company, of BOOK: Applied Cryptography fame. So there is some credibility to the security of the database file. Password Safe is available only for Microsoft Windows.
The database file is encrypted using the Twofish algorithm, and should resist cryptanalytic attack. The weakness is the master password, which must be complex enough to resist dictionary attacks.
Password Gorilla could not exist without the excellent packages that it depends on:

RLH This is a nice program. I use it on Windows and my Mac.
The latest Password Gorilla ( http://github.com/zdia/gorilla/wiki ) has already removed the BWidget requirement and substituted Ttk. Removal of iTcl will be trickier due to it having been deeply utilized in the low level core by the original author.
RLH Cool. :-)
