Pastilda is an open-source hardware, designed to manage the credentials in handy and secure way.

It’s for anyone (developers and hobbyists) who cares about personal and corporate information security and for people interested in programming STM32 and USB. If you labor every day to remember and enter a number of strong passwords, Pastilda could help your memory and save your time.

Pastilda works as a middleman between your computer and keyboard. It provides easy and safe auto-login to your OS, bank accounts, mailboxes, corporate network or social media. Pastilda stores encrypted passwords in its memory. You can request a particular password at any time by pressing a special key combination on your keyboard.

You can switch to “Pastilda mode”  by placing your cursor inside the login text box and pressing the “Ctrl + ~” key combination: you have to enter the master password for your KeePass database and, if it is correct, Pastilda will automatically enter the corresponding login and password.
