Jenny was designed to be a cross-platform password safe using Dallas Semiconductor's iButtons. This provides the benefits of a
password safe with the security of bring-something / know-something access. Other password safe programs store information encrypted
on the local disk. In the event that the system is lost, the password file may be directly attacked. By storing the password files on
an iButton (preferably on a ring or
watch) that is always carried on the person,
physical security can be established. Jenny uses PKCS#5-standard encryption to protect the passwords should the iButton be lost.

It is recommended that you email the author for MD5 sums to ensure authenticity before trusting this software.
Jenny was written and compiled using Sun Java SDK 1.4.1_01
and iButton drivers 4.00b3.
The OneWireViewer installed with the iButton drivers must be operational before running Jenny.
Extract the Zip to a user-accessable folder.
If you downloaded the source only, compile the program using javac.
Insert your iButton into the default adapter.
Start Jenny and select your iButton, if necessary.
Enter a master password. Jenny will decrypt all files created using that password, if any.
The menus are pretty intuitive.
