Solaris crypto + zenity

Here is a small perl GUI/zenity script in my ~/bin named vault (25 comment + 100 perl lines) that demos vault like feature to store snippets of important information encrypted on disk (or your home directory).

To use it you must have a key file in /etc/keys/username and make sure it is not readable by anyone else.

Usage is simple: vault file

It can also decrypt files encrpted by GPG.

Advantages: it manages the decrypted plain text files in safely created directories in /tmp and cleans them when you exit. So you dont have to leave the plain text files on disk or on terminal window.
