Description Malte S. Stretz 2010-04-15 13:34:13 UTC
Version:           unknown (using 4.4.2 (KDE 4.4.2), Kubuntu packages)
Compiler:          cc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.32-20-generic

Last July the Secret Storage Spec [0] was announced [1] and it seems like Gnome Keyring already supports it.  Also, software starts to depend on the/a Secrets Service daemon (like desktopcouch, which currently doesn't work without gnome-keyring [2]) and KDE PAM integration (bug 92845) seems to be stalled by the lack as well.  The PAM integration is even on the KDE 4.5 feature plan [3], but no information about this spec.

It is not easy to find infos about the current state of KWallet regarding an implementation of the spec (the most current I could find was on the fdo authentication list [4]).  There is code for an implementation in playground [5] though.

So I hope nobody minds if I open this tracker bug as a place for news about the progress of the implementation.

This one is earlier than 313216, but 313216 is more detailed.
