Compliments to Ralph Sutter for an excellent presentation on “Secure Password Management Applications.”

Ralph had just the correct amount of short videos to view and his live demonstration drove the point home.


This is the FREE program that I brought up during Ralph's presentation.
Steganos LockNote

I have been asked about a "LockNote equivalent" for the Mac. I use the following:
 a) TrueCrypt
 b) Espionage
 c) Encrypted sparse image files
