I am finally taking the plunge and employing the use of a password manager. After some research I have selected KeePassX. My plan is to replace all my web passwords with random 16 character strings.
I have decided to use a keyfile + password combination.
My question is this; is it a bad idea to use my
id_rsa as my KeePass key file? I carry my
id_rsa around with me at all times on an encrypted usb. It's always there, and it's a file I protect anyway, so it appears to make sense.
I'm just very conscious that re-using anything in security usually breaks the world in some way.
I would also like to centralise my password database in some way, rather than having to copy it across to laptop/desktop with each new password. Can anyone see a problem in using something like SVN to achieve this?
