Version 4.2.0 adds support for viewing KeePass databases (.kdbx) stored inside an encrypted container.

Disk Decipher allows you to browse your KeePass database similarly to ZIP files: groups and sub-groups in the database are presented as directories. Entries in the database are presented as files. You can use the familiar controls like searching and sorting to quickly find the entry you are looking for.

Supported features

  • KeePass v2.x (kdbx 3.1, 4.0 and 4.1) database format
    • AES-256, Twofish, Serpent and ChaCha20 outer ciphers
    • Salsa20 and ChaCha20 inner ciphers
    • AES-KDF, Argon2d and Argon2id key derivation functions
    • gzip compression
  • Viewing username, password, time-based one-time-password (TOTP), URL, notes and attachments fields of entries in the database


This is a list of features currently not yet supported:

  • Write support
  • Keyfiles
  • Viewing entry fields not listed in the section above

Please let me know if you need one of these features. That will allow me to prioritize the implementation.

These features are not supported and probably never will be, unless there is unexpected interest in them:

  • KeePass 1.x (kdb)
  • The deprecated (and insecure) ArcFourVariant stream cipher
