This is a password manager. I’m only installing it because it can be used as a credentials store for Docker (reference).

Installation: $ sudo apt-get install pass


  • First, you need a GPG key
    • $ gpg —gen-key
      • I ran into a timeout (“agent_genkey failed: Timeout”) when I got to the entropy step. I tried using the desktop environment to do this since I figured maybe there was a problem generating entropy via SSH, but that didn’t help.
    • I could apparently use puttygen to do this or even openssl, but I just gave up at this point.
