PasswordVault v5.0 adds Web form auto-fill and secure
auto-distribution for organizations

ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA — October 31, 2006 — Lava Software is now
shipping PasswordVault v5.0, a simple and practical password manager
for Windows, Mac OS X (Universal Binary), Mac OS Classic and
Linux(i86). This new version offers auto-filling of Web forms,
detailed reports after portable/desktop synchronization, first letter
filtering on service names, improved propagation of removed services
when synchronizing, a larger font size for better readability, larger
buttons for easier mouse clicking, and greatly reduced CPU
utilization. The new Professional Edition offers additional features
for password management and control within organizations, including
secure auto-distribution (via shared network drives on LANs or via
Web server URLs) and logging of auto-exports and auto-import service

A major new feature in this version is auto-distribution, a very
streamlined and secure way to automatically distribute passwords (and
other service information) between large groups of users, making it
very useful for password management and control within organizations.
Typically, privileged users within an organization would manage
particular service categories, and set up auto-export of those
categories to a ‘PasswordVault Distributable’ (PVD) file on a shared
network drive, which authorized users could subsequently auto-import.
Alternatively, PVD files can be uploaded to a Web server for
auto-import by remote users over the Internet. PVD files offer
additional security via an extra layer of strong 128-bit AES
encryption on top of the normal 896-bit double-Blowfish encryption
used by PasswordVault.

Web form auto-fill is an advanced new feature which greatly
simplifies user entry into Websites protected by a login screen, or
securely filling out Web forms, such as order forms. Setting up a
service to use this feature is quite simple, and the way data is
entered can be fully tailored to the form. The Web form can also be
automatically submitted by a simulated press of the Return/Enter key
after the form has been filled out, allowing Web forms of virtually
any complexity to be auto-filled and submitted with two mouse clicks.
Of course, when coupled with secure auto-distribution, productivity
efficiencies created by auto-fill can be quickly propagated
throughout an organization.

Standard features in PasswordVault include very strong 896-bit
encryption, a unique Master Password Recovery System (MPRS), random
password generator, auto-lock timer (with clipboard clear), very
powerful import and export functions, masked passwords, user defined
service categories, and enhanced support for use in large
organizations (The University of Illinois purchased site licenses of
PasswordVault for their campuses at Urbana-Champaign, Chicago and
Springfield in 2004, renewing their license in 2005 and again in
2006). The portable version runs directly off USB flash drives,
providing users with secure access to their website usernames and
passwords, Internet banking and other data when they’re on the road,
as well as the convenience of auto-synchronization when they return
to their desktop computer.

The free Lite Edition of PasswordVault v5.0 (available for immediate
download from includes a 30 day trial of
auto-distribution and supports up to 15 services, whilst the Standard
and Professional Editions support any number of services. Individual
licenses of the Standard Edition are priced at USD14.95, and
purchasers get download access to the current version of the software
for all platforms (both desktop and portable USB flash drive
versions), as well as free upgrades forever. The Professional
Edition, the only edition to include unlimited auto-distribution, is
available in multi-user packs starting from USD49.00 and as site
licenses for companies, universities and other organizations. All
current site licensees are offered a complimentary cross-grade to
this new edition on application. OEM pricing, customization and
rebranding options are available on request.
