GNOME Keyring Manager 2.12.1
|Stable release||3.36.4 (8 July 2020 )|
|Preview release||3.37.3 (7 July 2020 )|
GNOME Keyring is a software application designed to store security credentials such as usernames, passwords, and keys, together with a small amount of relevant metadata. The sensitive data is encrypted and stored in a keyring file in the user's home directory. The default keyring uses the login password for encryption, so users don't need to remember yet another password.
In 2009, a statistical study of software packages in the Red Hat GNU/Linux distribution found that packages depending upon GNOME Keyring (and therefore integrated somewhat with the GNOME desktop environment) were less likely to be associated with software vulnerabilities than those with a dependency upon kdelibs (and therefore integrated somewhat with the KDE desktop environment).
