Secure storing of passwords and other secrets

Project Description

Module description

This module provides a way for securely storing passwords and other secrets.

It uses D-Bus Secret Service API that is supported by GNOME Keyring (>= 2.30) and KSecretsService.

The main classes provided are secretstorage.Item, representing a secret item (that has a label, a secret and some attributes) and secretstorage.Collection, a place items are stored in.

SecretStorage supports most of the functions provided by Secret Service, including creating and deleting items and collections, editing items, locking and unlocking collections (asynchronous unlocking is also supported).

The documentation can be found on pythonhosted.org.
