Is it possible to use a backup without Passbolt?

Hi all
I was wondering what you think about this:
What if passbolt doesn’t exist anymore so that the platform will no longer be maintained?
How would you backup all your passwords that are in fact critical for your business? Would it be enough to regularely dump the passbolt SQL database? how would you be able to read it?
Thanks for your comments

Hello @roru,

Passbolt offers export and import functionality, including export from/to keepass and other popular password manager.

Passbolt is interoperable with Gnupg and other OpenPGP library/backends, so even the encrypted content can be decrypted with other solutions (provided you collect your users private keys). So compared to other proprietary solutions the risk of vendor or technological lock-in is less.

Cheers,

Hi @remy

Thanks a lot for your answer. I tried keepass export. It worked, only that the groups structure has diasppeared. Is there a way to create a keepass export from bash script instead of web frontend?

As for other OpenPGP libraries/backends, it would be enough to backup the database and the user’s private keys?

cheers, roger

Hello,

At the moment there is no option to create a keepass export from script, though this is something we want to add to the command line interface (http://github.com/passbolt/passbolt_cli)

As for other OpenPGP libraries/backends, it would be enough to backup the database and the user’s private keys?

Yes.
