Pault is a simple password manager that encrypts passwords using a military-grade AES algorithm. Your passwords are stored in a single text file, making them highly portable. The resulting text file is highly encrypted and cannot be opened without your master password. Only Pault can read the format of your passwords, adding protection against brute force decrpytion methods.
Why is Pault needed?
Using the same password for all your online accounts can severely compromise your security, by introducing a single point of failure. Having many different passwords introduces a new problem – trying to remember them all. I previously wrote my passwords in a notebook, hidden away in my study. But what if someone finds the notebook? All the clear-text passwords become compromised.
What if my Pault data corrupts?
Pault stores your passwords in a single text file. You can copy this file to a USB drive or online storage service, eliminating the risk of losing your passwords. Don’t worry, nobody else will be able to open the file without your “master password” and a copy of Pault.
How do I know I can trust Pault?
Pault runs with minimal user permissions, meaning it is not able to connect to the internet in any way. Pault even encrypts your master password as soon as it’s entered, protecting it against tools like Sysinternals Process Explorer.
Pault requires Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 (or newer) installed on your system. It supports Windows XP, through to Windows 8.June 26, 2012 at 5:54 am #5636
Issue with encoding for languages like russian. The description and the password are displayed as ????.
If master password in Russian, it is easy to bypass the password. It is enough to enter the same amount of signs, as at the real password.

Pault doesn’t support Unicode; so non-latin characters are ignored.
