The gnome -keyring daemon
' gnome-keyring -daemon 'u gnome-keyring -daemon [OPTION...]
The gnome-keyring -daemon is a service that stores your passwords and secrets . It is normally started automatically when a user logs into a desktop session .
The gnome-keyring -daemon implements the DBus Secret Service API, and you can use tools like seahorse or secret-tool to interact with it .
The daemon also implements a GnuPG and SSH agent both of which automatically load the user (Aqs keys, and prompt for passwords when necessary .
The daemon will print out various environment variables which should be set in the user (Aqs environment, in order to interact with the daemon .
The various startup arguments below can be used:
-c , --components= ssh,secrets,pkcs11 Ask the daemon to only initialize certain components . Valid components are ssh, secrets, pkcs11 .
-C , --control -directory= /path/to/directory Use this directory for creating communication sockets . By default a temporary directory is automatically created .
-d , --daemonize Run as a real daemon, disconnected from the terminal .
-f , --foreground Run in the foreground, and do not fork or become a daemon .
-l , --login This argument tells the daemon it is being run by PAM . It reads all of stdin (including any newlines) as a login password and does not complete actual initialization . The daemon should later be initialized with a gnome-keyring -daemon --start invocation . This option implies --unlock . It may not be used together with either the --replace or --start arguments .
-r , --replace Try to replace a running keyring daemon, and assume its environment variables . A successful replacement depends on the GNOME_KEYRING_CONTROL environment variable being set by an earlier daemon . This option may not be used together with either the --login or --start arguments .
-s , --start Connect to an already running daemon and initialize it . This is often used to complete initialization of a daemon that was started by PAM using the --login argument . This option may not be used together with either the --login or --replace arguments .
--unlock Read a password from stdin, and use it to unlock the login keyring or create it if the login keyring does not exist .
-V , --version Print out the gnome -keyring version and then exit .
-h , --help Show help options and exit .
