Hello there,

I have a question about using the EGO keys. I was thinking about using
them for authentication in the CADET chat but I have a problem with the
current handling of these keys.

The files are basically unencrypted on the local drive which is
definitely convenient but could potentially be a problem depending on
applications running on the system.

For example if I wanted to develop a remote control application with
GNUNET for supporting assistance and some other tasks. I would like to
have at least the possibility to encrypt those EGO keys with a password
using symmetric keys.

I guess I could do that manually on the files but my question is: Why
isn't there an automatic way using the GNUNET API to do so? I mean it
could be optional because I also see the benefits of raw access and
many (if not most) people use encryption for their drive anyway.

But without this feature I would still prefer using GpGMe for handling
identities instead of EGO because GpG allows it optionally even though
I would like to reduce dependencies as well.
