gnome-keyring is a daemon in the session, similar to ssh-agent,
and other applications can use it to store passwords and other
sensitive information.
This package contains a PAM module that will automatically unlock the
keyrings using your login password, making gnome-keyring usage
transparent without losing its security benefits.
When installed, this module will automatically be used by GDM and
gnome-screensaver to unlock your keyrings when logging in and when
unlocking the screen saver.
