Abstract [en]

Strong passwords have been preached since decades. However, lot of the regular users of IT systems resort to simple and repetitive passwords, especially nowadays in the "service era". To help alleviate this problem, a new class of software grew popular: password managers. Since their introduction, password managers have slowly been migrating into the cloud. In this paper we review and analyze current professional password managers in the cloud. We discuss several functional and nonfunctional requirements to evaluate existing solutions and we sum up their strengths and weaknesses. The main conclusion is that a silver bullet solution is not available yet and that this type of tools still deserve a significant research effort from the privacy and security community.
