Yopass is a project for sharing secrets in a quick and secure manner, similar to Password Pusher and Private Bin. The sole purpose of Yopass is to minimize the amount of passwords floating around in ticket management systems, Slack messages and emails. The message is encrypted/decrypted locally in the browser and then sent to Yopass without the decryption key which is only visible once during encryption; Yopass then returns a one-time URL with a specified expiry date. Yopass is designed to be as simple and “dumb” as possible without compromising on security. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Yopass on your Synology NAS using Docker and Portainer.
