Description

This is a guide on how I setup KeePass with the keepasshttp plugin and chromeipass on Chrome/Chromium and passifox on Firefox. The keepass database is synchronized to my various clients using owncloud, but that is outside the scope of this guide.

Prepare the Environment

  • Make sure the system is up to date:
    sudo pacman -Syu
    

Install KeePass

  • Install keepass:
    sudo pacman -S keepass wget
    
  • Install the keepasshttp plugin:
    wget https://raw.github.com/pfn/keepasshttp/master/KeePassHttp.plgx -O /usr/share/keepass/KeePassHttp.plgx
    
  • Open KeePass for the plugin to compile.

Web Browser Integration

Chrome/Chromium

  • Open Chrome/Chromium and go to Menu -> More Tools -> Extentions and then click Get more extensions
  • Search for ChromeIPass and install the extension.
  • When the extension installs, click the ChromeIPass icon and click Connect, this will bring up the keepass database connection pairing setup.

Firefox

  • Open Firefox and go to Menu -> Addons
  • Search for "PassIFox" and install the addon, and restart Firefox when the addon finishes installing.
  • After Firefox restarts, go to a website containing a login form. When the FoxIPass configuration pops up, click Connect, this will bring up the keepass database connection pairing setup.
