GNOME Keyring Manager 2.12.1
|Stable release||3.30.2 (31 October 2018) [±]|
|Preview release||3.31.2 (16 November 2018) [±]|
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.
GNOME Keyring is part of the GNOME desktop. As of 2006, it integrated with NetworkManager to store WEP passwords. The email client Geary uses GNOME Keyring to store passwords for email accounts.
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).
