Passlet is a new Ajax password manager that does all encryption/decryption on the client side.
Passlet uses the industry-standard key derivation function PBKDF2 (c.f. RFC 2898) to derive a 128-bit AES key from the master password.
Passlet is an example of the Host-Proof Hosting (more closely than Agatra and Halfnote) – Parvez says “While I was reading it, I couldn’t help but smile: your design pattern is a generalization of what I was thinking in the specific context of a password manager. And now you have a real-world example of this design pattern!”
