I am looking for a simple, portable, and cross-platform way to keep an encrypted password file.

Right now I'm using https://encipher.it/ and emailing myself the encrypted text whenever I change it. It's not great because I'm just trusting that the website is doing everything client-side.

Things I would like

  • Ability to easily edit the file and re-encrypt when done.
  • Being required to enter a password every time I view or edit the file.
  • Not to have to create a disk image or anything.
  • No accounts or anything that I could get locked out of.
  • Easy sync to/from cloud.
  • Ability to edit from multiple devices (android, macbook, linux computer, etc).
  • Bonus would be to have Deniable Encryption

Does anything like this exist?
