[[!meta title="Manage OpenPGP keys and SSH keys"]]

<span class="application">Passwords and Keys</span> creates and stores
security tokens, helping to keep your information secure on your
computer, and secure when you send information over a network.

Using <span class="application">Passwords and Keys</span>, you can:

* Copy and save passwords that are difficult to remember. Tails also
  ships [[KeePassX|doc/encryption_and_privacy/manage_passwords]] to
  manage passwords.
* Create and manage OpenPGP keys.
* Create and manage SSH keys.

To start <span class="application">Passwords and Keys</span> choose
<span class="menuchoice">
  <span class="guimenu">Applications</span>&nbsp;▸
  <span class="guisubmenu">Accessories</span>&nbsp;▸
  <span class="guimenuitem">Password and Keys</span>.
