so here is my problem:

we all know that the osx keychain is located in ~/Library/Keychains/something.keychain

now i've got this file and i know the master password for this keychain. is there a way to browse the keys in there using a external software or something? I don't want to import this keychain into my current one (if its possible).

Any ideas?

  • What do you mean by “external software”? Something that is not Keychain Access? Something from a third party (not Apple)? Something that can run on a platform other than Mac OS X? – Chris Johnsen Mar 25 '11 at 9:02

I use the following script to extract a password from the Keyring:

$ cat get_password_from_keyring 
security find-generic-password -a $1 -g 2>&1 | grep password | cut -d \" -f 2
