     6      6   The "hunter2" password manager is a simple script-oriented password 
     7      7   manager.  You request that passwords be stored by a given identifier and 
     8      8   then later retrieve them with that identifier.
     9      9   
    10     10   Passwords are encrypted using your public RSA key and can be decrypted 
    11         -with your private RSA key.  Currently only keys stored on hardware 
           11  +with your private RSA key.  Currently only keys accessed via PKCS#11
    12     12   security modules (such as smartcards, TPMs, etc) are supported.
    13     13   
    14     14   Passwords may be shared among users of the same database and anyone who 
    15     15   can decrypt the password may add additional users be able to access the 
    16     16   password.
    17     17   
    18         -Passwords are stored in a simple SQLite3 DB.  AES-128 is used to encrypt 
    19         -the passwords and RSA is used to encrypt the AES key.
           18  +Passwords are stored in a simple text-based file which can be easily
           19  +merged by your version control system.  AES-128 is used to encrypt the
           20  +passwords and RSA is used to encrypt the AES key.
