I have emerged gnome-base/gnome-keyring-3.28.2 with USE="pam", but I'm still asked for the gnome-keyring password. I have set the same password for the keyring and for the user. Is that required anyway or is the keyring password just encrypted by the user-password? However it doesn't work. What steps are necessary?
Moreover I would like to reduce the count of passwords without loosing too much security. Having a LUKS password on boot and full encryption, I would prefer the password-less login to the Window Manager. But then it would not be possible to pass the password to the keyring anymore, is it? Having a completely unencrypted keyring, would that be a big security issue? I mean the shut down system is safe based on the encryption. But for the running system, the unencrypted keyring files would be accessible by each process, is that true?
