Apple announces open-source password manager project for app developers

Apple announced on Friday an open-source project to help password manager developers generate stronger passwords for users.

The ‘Password Manager Resources’ project is one of a handful of open source projects by Apple. This project allows developers of password manager applications to integrate site specific requirements used by the iCloud Keychain manager.

Documentation for the Password Manager Resources details the goal of this project, to have password app developers collaborate on website-specific behaviours and improve user trust.

Included in the project are resources called ‘quirks’ which include website behaviors, specific password guidelines, and credential backends. Regular password managers have no way to know site-specific password guidelines, these ‘quirks’ can help developers create password managers that generate passwords based on the site’s requirements.

You can view the full project and details on GitHub
