It seems like everyone is using a password manager these days. If you’re a Linux administrator, well you’re not left out. There’s a command line password manager called Titan which allows you to manage passwords that you administer. No more scribbling your password credentials on pieces of paper or placing them on insecure note applications on your desktop. You can now save your server credentials via the command line. You can recall them at anytime and even generate passwords for you. One thing it will not do is work on browsers like LastPass. Titan is strictly on passwords that you use via the command line.
