DESCRIPTIONclivepass is a replacement for stored plain-text website login passwords used with clive(1). It keeps website login passwords encrypted in a repository file that can be accessed with a global passphrase. Typically these login passwords are passed in plain-text form to clive(1) on command line or from a config file.
Note that even though the passwords are encrypted on disk, they are passed in plain-text over the network. This means the passwords are still visible to anyone intercepting the network traffic.
Historically, a similar utility existed as part of clive 1.0 but was removed in clive 2.0 and later rewritten in Perl as part of the clive-utils project which is a set of additional utilities for clive(1).
