    I'm looking for a good password manager which can be backed up to a linux box - I'm trying to develop a complete independence from desktop iTunes. I also need some sort of backup solution - all my previous passwords were stored on an old Palm PDA, which is now bricked. But I'm a 100% linux user...

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    -A.

    You could try a dual boot into MicroXP.

    All you need is a 1GB partition (even less), because the installation is only 200MB.
    You can download iTunes, and keep all your music on the linux partition.

    On MicroXP, Shift-Click+Open iTunes and choose a new iTunes library .itl file, all directed to your Linux partition, so all you really need is maybe a 300MB partition made for MicroXP.

    Trust me, its worth it.

    Although, Ive never used Linux in my life.

    Thanks very much - but that's not quite what I want. I could also experiment with iTunes under WINE... All I want is a good password manager, with an ability to back it up to a linux box - using sftp, for example.

    Thanks again

    Ive heard Wine w/ iTunes has worked for some people, but what exactly are you talking about you want a password manager that could be backed up to a linux "box"

    WTF IS A LINUX BOX, LMFAO!

    Are you talking about an application for the iPod touch that stores passwords and backs them up to some kind of storage place on your Linux operating system?

    Why even involve an iPod touch.

    Just write down the passwords in Notepad (or whatever Linux users do) and then save them somewhere on your Linux.

    How exactly do you want to incorporate an iPod touch?

    Trouble is, I move around a lot - home, different locations at work. I don't normally have my laptop with me, although I will have access to a networked computer. So I need some safe portable method of keeping my passwords with me - I have too many accounts to remember them all, with conflicting security requirements.

    Theres apps on the app store that securely store your passwords in a vault.
    You could even write them on Notes and then use that.

    Theres no reason to involve transferring the passwords to networked Linux computers
