a Gnome encryption interface

Seahorse is the GNOME application for managing encryption keys and passwords. Currently it supports PGP keys (using GPG/GPGME) and SSH keys. Its goal is to provide an easy to use Key Management Tool, along with an easy to use interface for encryption operations.

Seahorse is integrated into the GNOME Desktop Environment and allows users to perform operations from their regular applications, like Nautilus or Gedit.
