GTK+-2-based PIN or pass-phrase entry dialog for GnuPG

GTK+-2-based PIN or pass-phrase entry dialog for GnuPG
from version 0.8.3-1ubuntu1

Description

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 dialog using the GTK+ tool kit version 2. If the X Window System is not active then an alternative text-mode dialog will be used. There are sibling packages that implement PIN entry dialogs using other tool kits.
