Securely Storing your UT Passwords using Stache

The UT Information Security Office has just announced the availability of a new service to store UT passwords in a highly secured environment.  The service, dubbed "Stache" is an online password repository running on specialized secure hardware.

The IT community at UT is excited about this but there is also value for other staff and faculty.  For example, some of you use Digital Certificates for email.  Part of the setup process requires you to backup your "keys".  This is exactly the type of data to store in Stache.

You can access Stache with your EID at
