Abstract: A study of password usage and crypotography in computing culminates in the development of a password manager that improves users' password security. PassMan offers two-factor encrypted storage of user passwords and account information via the Yubikey, a common hardware authentication device, login auto-typing, password strength calculation, and customizable password generation. *Includes CD.
