Hello all. I have a couple of questions about gnome-keyring.
The data on my laptop are pretty unimportant, and as such, if someone were to gain access to it and peruse my system, I would be annoyed, but not threatened. The only sensitive information that is stored on the laptop are my RSA private key as well as various passwords, which give me access to other machines. These other machines DO contain sensitive information.
The private key is encrypted with a passphrase, which, from what I understand makes it secure and useless without said passphrase (please, please correct me if I am wrong). This passphrase, along with other passwords (wpa-psks, etc) are kept by gnome-keyring.
So my questions are:
1. How secure is the gnome-keyring data if someone gains access to my laptop?
2. Can this data be copied and decrypted (to get plain-text passwords)?
3. Can it be copied and used in conjunction with my encrypted private key to gain access to the remote machines?
4. Would it matter if the attacker only had temporary access to my laptop (i.e. I went to the bathroom and left it unlocked) or actually had my ubuntu login password?
Any help would be appreciated.
