PAM module to unlock the GNOME keyring upon login

gnome-keyring is a daemon in the session, similar to ssh-agent, and other applications can use it to store passwords and other sensitive information.

This package contains a PAM module that will automatically unlock the keyrings using your login password, making gnome-keyring usage transparent without losing its security benefits.

When installed, this module will automatically be used by GDM and gnome-screensaver to unlock your keyrings when logging in and when unlocking the screen saver.

Package version:3.4.1-5


gnome-keyring is a program that keep password and other secrets for
users. It is run as a damon in the session, similar to ssh-agent, and
other applications locate it via an environment variable or a dbus.

The program can manage several keyrings, each with its own master
password, and there is also a session keyring which is never stored to
disk, but forgotten when the session ends.

The library 


pam_gnome_keyring for Debian

The default PAM configuration for GDM and gnome-screensaver already 
uses pam_gnome_keyring. Password change is also implemented through the 
global PAM configuration.

If you want to start gnome_keyring from another display manager, you 
need to add the following lines to the corresponding /etc/pam.d/?dm 
    auth    optional
