KeePass: Free secure password manager for Windows

Maintaining a secure list of all the passwords and serial numbers that we have to deal with today is a real challenge.  If you use a Smartphone SplashID is a great option.  For those who don't have a Smartphone, and are looking for a portable password store, KeePass is an excellent choice.

KeyPass is a free, highly secure, password storage system that doesn't require installation.  In other words, you can carry around your list of passwords on your favorite USB storage media.  KeePass supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and the Twofish algorithms to encrypt its password databases.  You can file and sort your passwords, attach memorable icons to them, as well as notes.  KeePass has a really nice random password generation feature that lets you set how sophisticated the random password should be.  This application is certainly worth a look if you are on the move, and trying to manage huge list of logins, passwords and serial numbers.
