The GateKeeper Password Manager is a browser extension (Chrome, Firefox, Edge) that works alongside the GateKeeper Client application to provide users access to their web passwords. The following are the key aspects of the browser extension with regards to security.
1. The extension DOES NOT communicate with any external server. It does not reach out to a cloud or on-premise web server to retrieve web passwords.
2. The extension ONLY communicates with the pre-installed GateKeeper Client application on the same computer.
3. The extension provides access to web passwords ONLY IF the user has signed on to the computer using the GateKeeper token. If the GateKeeper token is not used for computer authentication, the browser extension will not provide any web passwords.
4. The Chrome extension does not store any passwords at any time. Passwords are requested from the GateKeeper Client application only as needed.
