This package contains a program that allows for secure entry of PINs or
pass phrases.  That means it tries to take care that the entered
information is not swapped to disk or temporarily stored anywhere.
This functionality is particularly useful for entering pass phrases
when using encryption software such as GnuPG or e-mail clients using
the same.  It uses an open protocol and is therefore not tied to
particular software.
The program contained in this package implements a PIN entry prompt
that interacts directly with the controlling terminal.  It has
minimal dependencies, meaning that it is useful for users working
with dumb terminals or similarly constrained environments.  There are
sibling packages that implement PIN entry dialogs that use curses for
friendlier text-mode inputs on non-dumb terminals, and other sibling
packages that provide PIN entry dialogs using an X tool kit.
