Why an open source version of Clipperz?
Because we want to enable as many people as possible to play with our code. So that they can start trusting it. The code, not its developers.
In order to allow anyone not just to inspect the source code, but also to analyze the traffic it generates between client and server, we made available this open source version as an easy way to locally deploy the whole password manager web app on your machine. You can choose among the available backends (PHP/MySQL, Python/AppEngine, …) or contribute your own.
Whatever is your motivation for playing with Clipperz code, we would love to hear from you: get in contact!
The open source version of Clipperz is suitable for testing and educational purposes only. Do not use it as an actual password management solution.
As an example, the current PHP backend lacks several critical capabilities such as bot protection and concurrent sessions management, moreover it could be vulnerable to serious threats (SQL injections, remote code execution, …).
