I am building a password manager on my Raspberry Pi Zero, using `pass` – the UNIX Password Manager as a platform. (See: passwordstore.org)
This Project was inspired by the Hackaday articles about using the RPi Zero as a USB Gadget from [LadyAda] and [gbaman], and the RPi-Wifi hack from [ajlitt].
Using a ‘Composite USB Gadget’ and the libcomposite driver, the Pi will present itself as a HID (Keyboard) and Ethernet adapter (SSH). Using the on-device OLED screen and the button matrix, you can select a desired password and username combination to send to the connected computer and enter the master passphrase.
Since `pass` can update the password store over `git`, I decided to give the ESP-hack a try, so you can fetch your latest passwords on the fly.
The Ethernet adapter will be useful for debugging, but also to change passwords on the device or perhaps serving a web panel to select and display passwords.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
