A Password Manager for Android with USB Keyboard emulation.
The idea behind Authorizer is, to use old smartphones as a hardware password manager only. To avoid manual typing of long and complex passwords everytime you need them, Authorizer pretends to be an USB keyboard (e.g. over an USB On-The-Go adapter). With a button press inside the App, it will automatically enters the password for you on your pc, laptop, tablet or main smartphone.
For USB keyboard emulation, Authorizer requires a special Android kernel/rom. More details/instructions are available under http://github.com/pelya/android-keyboard-gadget
A beta release is available over github, f-droid or Google Play Store.
The project is searching for contributors ... to add features like two factor authentication (different standards), OpenPGP Smartcard emulation over NFC Host-based Card Emulation, and a lot of futher ideas.
