Please split GtkSecureEntry into a library
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I'd be nice to have GtkSecureEntry in a separate library so more Gtk
applications can benefit from it's security features. I ended up copying
over the code to krb5-auth-dialog and it seems gnome-keyring took the
code from there too.

agx set Version to 0.7.5.
agx added a subscriber: agx.

Too much mainenance work. It is also closely coupled to the secmem stuff. You
better ask the GTK folks to add such a widget.

The coupling to secmem is why I propsed this for pinentry not for GTK+ itself.

Since GTK1 and Qt pinentries also depend on secmem, so secmem could would have
to move into a lib first or this would be duplicated between GTK+ and pinentry

Since this is security related code not having that many copies around would
really be nice.

GtkSecureEntry has been removed from pinentry.
