13Description: Basic key-management system with secure recovery features.
14 The primary purpose of the key management system is
15 to provide a secure way of recovering important cryptographic keys,
16 e.g., keys for decrypting backup volumes, in the event of a disaster.
17 .
18 Because it was technically fairly easy, given this infrastructure, the
19 system also allows users to generate and use their own keys, without
20 revealing the actual key data, on the theory that, what a user program
21 doesn't know, it can't leak.
22 .
23 This system doesn't actually do very much cryptography itself. Instead,
24 it uses other existing implementations, such as GnuPG, OpenSSL, and
25 Seccure.
