To conclude (for now) this extensive look at 1Password, we’ll go back a little to see how local private vaults work. Initially, local vaults were all you had (though they could be synced over Dropbox and other methods). These are documented separately from the cloud based “Teams” system. Now, local vaults are basically being discouraged in favor of the cloud system.

But you can still have a mix of local and loud vaults. So it’s worth seeing how those affect the way data is stored in 1Password.

In previous installments, we looked at the Two-Secret Key Derivation (2SKD) process, Encrypted Master Keys, and shared vaults.

Unlocking 1Password

When you have multiple cloud-based accounts set up on a client, the first account is designated as “primary.” That account’s master password is used to unlock all the other accounts on the client. On macOS, this makes use of the 2SKD system, while on Windows systems, it’s EMK. However, if your client includes local vaults, this changes a little.

As you may recall, the user’s master password is used to decrypt (eventually) the “enc_login” field in the client’s “accounts” table. On macOS, we use the 2SKD process to decrypt the first keyset, which then decrypts this item. In Windows, it’s the EMK which provides the decryption key. With private vaults, it’s yet another system, a bit closer to the Windows approach.

First, we now have (at least on macOS) two databases to look at: B5.sqlite (the cloud-based database), and OnePassword.sqlite (local vaults). In the OnePassword database is a “profiles” table with some important information for each locally configured account:

Decrypting Key Data

First, we need to generate a key based on the Master Password. This is much simpler than the 2SKD process, and involves only the PBKDF2 function:

keys = PBKDF2('sha512', password, salt, iterations, 64)

The password is what the user enters, the salt and iterations count come from the profiles table, the hash function used is SHA-512, and a total of 64 bytes are generated. This generates a pair of keys: a 256-bit AES key, and a 256-bit HMAC key.

These keys are then used to decrypt the “master_key_data” and “overview_key_data” items, which are both opdata formatted structures. Once you look at the decrypted output, though, you may be confused – they really look like random bytes. Which is because that’s precisely what they are. The master key data is 256 bytes of random data, and the overview key, 64 bytes.

That data is then used as the input to another SHA-512 operation, which then produces the actual master and overview keys (each being, again, an AES key plus HMAC key, for 512 bits of actual generated key data).

Local Vault Key Generation

Local Vault Key Generation

So the overall function looks like this:

# derive key-encrypting-key from Master Password
derived_keys = PBKDF2('sha512', password, salt, iterations, 64)
derived_aes = derived_keys[0:32]
derived_hmac = derived_keys[32:64]

# decrypt key data for Master Key and generate AES+HMAC keys using SHA-512
m_data = opdata_decrypt(master_key_data, derived_aes, derived_hmac)
m_keys = SHA512(m_data)
m_aes = m_keys[0:32]
m_hmac = m_keys[32:64]

# do the same for the overview key
o_data = opdata_decrypt(overview_key_data, derived_aes, derived_hmac)    
o_keys = SHA512(o_data)
o_aes = o_keys[0:32]
o_hmac = o_keys[32:64]

These two keys are used to decrypt the private vault data. The “overview” key is used for item metadata (name, etc.) while the “master key” decrypts the data itself. We’ll see those in a moment.

The master key also decrypts the “enc_login” data from the accounts table. So let’s see a full example of the key derivation and account data decryption (with some debug data cut out…it was getting a little long).

First, get all the data:

$ python

Now, derive the key to decrypt the random key data, using PBKDF2, salt, password, and 100,000 iterations:

                     bb81 9bd1 4511 b7f9 fe68 c888 0644 8e24  

Next, we decrypt the master_key_data field:

This looks very similar to what’s stored here for cloud-based accounts – for the primary account, we have the SRP-X password and salt, the master unlock key, and the Secret Key (here called “Personal Key”). The MUK then unlocks the AES key for the first keyset, which can then unlock other accounts' keysets, and so forth.

Local Vault Storage

So now that we’ve unlocked the client, and have Master and Overview keys, we can also decrypt items stored in local vaults.

Each item has two parts: the overview (stored in the “items” table), and the actual data (in “item_details”.) The overview is encrypted with (surprise!) the overview key, while the data is encrypted with a random key, different for each item.

The key_data structure includes four components:

  • Initialization Vector (IV) (16 bytes)
  • Item Encryption Key (32 bytes)
  • Item HMAC Key (32 bytes)
  • HMAC Tag (32 bytes)

First, compute the HMAC tag using the encrypted item keys (encryption + HMAC) as the message, and the Master HMAC Key as key. If that matches the the HMAC tag found in the structure, then we know it hasn’t been altered. Now, use the Master AES key to decrypt the item keys, and those keys (AES + HMAC) to decrypt the actual vault item.

Here’s the entire process, starting with generating the master and overview keys:

Is that it?

That’s it. I kind of sped over this part, because I was more interested in how local copies of the cloud vaults were encrypted, and because we’re kind of (eventually) moving away from using this older vault format. Also it’s been worked with before – there are several projects on GitHub which read and write these vaults.

Next time, I’ll wrap up the entire series (mostly, I’ll just list all the things I didn’t talk about, which is actually a fair bit).
