Password database

I am trying to locate a password database for use at work. I have looked at several open source packages but all that I have found are for a single user and we need to allow multiple user access with view restrictions.

Does anyone know of a program that fits these requirements?

Thanks

What are you wanting to accomplish with this...

1. just store all kinds of passwords securely in a database for users to retrieve. If this is all you need, you may look at using MySQL with PHP and serve secure webpages with the passwords, as ONE option.

2. Or does the database need to feed to passwords to applications? That of course is more involved.

2. Server as a central authentication point for infrastructure access? In that case, ONE option would be to look at LDAP, such as OpenLDAP OpenLDAP

Basically yes.

This database is for use by a support group maintaining routers, switches, servers, etc. Of course all users should not have access to everything so I need to be able to limit their access to passwords based on the group they are in. From my limited database knowledge I believe this would be considered a view.

Nope, not needed.

No, not trying to set up something like a PKI, that's too complicated for me.
