quintuple-agent - Secure store for secrets (passphrases, etc.)

This is a followup to yesterday's kuvert package.
quintuple-agent serves as a cache for secrets, so that you don't have to enter them over and over again. You enter a secret once, and quintuple-agent stores it for a configurable timespan. Programs needing the secret can query the agent for it instead of bothering you.

Included are wrappers for PGP 2 and GnuPG.

&rw says:
Don't get me wrong, it's not a "password safe", it's a cache, not a facilty for permanent storage (which, wrt. passwords and -phrases, should reside only inside your skull anyway).

More information on this package can be found on the Debian web site.
(If there is a package you would like to see featured here, go to the userinfo page and follow the directions there to submit your entry.)

Now available in RSS and ATOM flavors too.
