Single Login on Local Device
Currently if bw-desktop and bw-browser are installed on a computer, using both requires entering the master password twice, once in the browser and once in the desktop app. I am looking for a way to share the vault between the multiple installed instances, so that it is possible to login once, and have browser + desktop both unlock.
I can look into developing this myself, just looking for some pointers/ ideas for how to implement it best.
My current thinking was create an api call that allows for browser/desktop to see if the other has a
decryptedCipherCache. Then at the login screen make the api call, if false then the user is logged in on neither, continue as usual.
If true, then using a pre-shared key to encrypt the CipherCache, transfer the Cache locally from the logged in browser/desktop to the one at the login screen.
I have only looked at the code in brief at this point, I am not sure if it would be possible to create a “two-headed snake” approach where the browser/desktop are just UI’s for the same vault?
