It would be very handy to have my passwords stored in an encrypted way and to be
able to be retrieved through various means. I wonder if it may be possible to
retrieve them through voice-recognition.

  • Component changed from Host Software to openmoko-libs

I think this is about two different problems:

  1. Storing passwords from applications/email/www-logins etc in a save encrypted

way. We need to decide if we reuse something like gnome-keyring or omplement our
own. Personally I would reuse existing code as implement crypto is hard to get
right. Add some sane API on the top? (Need to investigate the existing code before)

  1. Retrieving passwords. Do you really like to spoke your password loud into

your phone? I'm a bit scared about this idea as normaly there is somebody around
which I don't like to know my password.
