The aim of this project is to create a secure offline password manager that is unrivalled in the compilation of unique user functionalities, security and ease of use. This project aims to improve upon current password managers by providing greater flexibility of use, clarity of feedback and seamless maintenance without compromising on security. To facilitate all the before mentioned, the primary objectives further illustrate how Vault Knox Password Manager accomplishes the project vision.

Vault Knox Password Manager:
● utilizes a decentralized encrypted offline database to maintain and store passwords that utilize strong password protocols.
● can generate new secure random passwords that satisfy industry-leading strong password protocols.
● facilitates maintenance of security through continuous report feedback, inactivity termination and update of outdated or compromised passwords.
● can be utilized for all offline and online applications, wherever passwords are used for user profiles.
● maintains secure and fail-safe recovery of credentials using a two-factor authentication mechanism.
● facilitates security using leading industry protocols for hashing, encryption, decryption and true random value generation.
● places the responsibility of the extent to which security of passwords is applied, on the user.
● prioritises functional simplicity and ease of use regardless of the users’ technical proficiency.
● mitigates the threat exposure to the overall application system, by implementing secure application programming and principles.
