gpg-agent and memory locking
Tue Sep 9 03:48:01 2003
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I'm looking to find out if gpg-agent locks memory to prevent the passphrase
from getting swapped and if it does, should it also be setuid root as gpg
(on systems that require root access to lock memory that is)?
I've found a reference on this list that says it does do this and should be
setuid but couldn't find anything else.
Can anyone shed some light on this or point me to some docs that address it?
