Question Application for Secure Storage of Pin's, Pass, etc..

I once saw on Windows or was it pocket PC? well anyway, it was an application where I could store my Username and Password's, Pin's, Credit cards, etc...
It was customizable so you had kind of Folders and Cards you added, depending on what you wanted to store, and it would have entries for things like Emergency numbers, Pin's, Passwords, etc.
In essential it was a just a secure Database.

Currently I use a combination of Keepass, and KDE wallet, but none of them gives that flexibility I want of storing different items in one place.
I was also thinking about making some kind of PHP/MYSQL database, so I can access it anywhere, but well found that to be difficult and to risky based on my knowledge in developing, so dropped that idea quickly.

It should use Strong Encrytion, and be Flexible with what kind of data I can enter.
If it is cross platform Linux/PocetPC/OSX, and open source, it would be a plus.

I tried to google for it, but did not really come up with anything good.

Anyone know of if such application has been made?

There is an open-source app in windows called Password Safe. For Linux clones, scroll down to the bottom of this page ( to the Related Projects.

You can find a couple more here:

Thanks, for the link.

I tried to install the windows version in Wine since it is the one with the higest version number,
And well, it does pretty much the same as KeePass.

And they are all pretty much only aimed at storing Usernames and Passwords, I'm looking for something where I can store pretty much anything, from Scans of my Passport, to Credit Card Details to just the plain old Username and Password for a Web site.

So well, I will keep on looking. ;-)
