Convert Keepass export to Password Gorilla import

I recently skimmed a paper showing the success of attacking the security of various password database file formats. The only one which withstood both the passive and active attacks was the Password Safe format.

I wondered how hard it would be to migrate my KeePass data into a Password Safe DB. The Googs showed lots of results for moving from Password Safe to KeePass but not the other way around. Here’s what I finally used to import into Password Gorilla (warning: Password Gorilla by default on my Mac created a v1 database file, which was unreadable by other password safe-compatible apps). When I created an empty v2 file and then opened it with Password Gorilla, I was then able to ask it to import the CSV successfully.

Don’t forget to shred your intermediate csv or other files when done.
