(Now called Keyring for PalmOS instead.) Keyring lets you securely store secret keys and confidential information on a PalmOS handheld computer. This information might include: computer account passwords, credit card numbers, GnuPG or PGP passphrases, SKey one-time-pads, or phone banking keywords.

Keyring is Free Software, so you can inspect it to satisfy yourself of its security, modify it to meet your needs, and share it with your friends.

Records are encrypted using the well-trusted DES3 algorithm on a master password. For your convenience, the keyring can stay unlocked for a time after you enter your master password. You can configure this behaviour through the "Preferences" command. Keyring attempts to overwrite memory containing sensitive data after use.

When you need to set a password, Keyring can generate a random password of specified length, optionally including letters, numbers or symbols.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
