libsecret is accepting Outreachy interns as well

Like other projects in GNOME, libsecret also has an open project for Outreachy internship: Create a portable library for reading/writing libsecret keyring format.

libsecret is a library that allows applications to store/retrieve user secrets (typically passwords). While it usually works as a client against a separate D-Bus service, it can also use a local file as database. The project is about refactoring the file database so it can easily gain more advanced features like hardware-based security, etc. That might sound intimidating as it touches cryptography, but don’t worry and reach out to us if you are interested 🙂
