the Kernel::Keyring manpage is a rudimentary wrapper for libkeyutils based syscalls.
Provided functions should suffice for the typical use case: storing passwords/keys in a secure location, the kernel.
Data stored in the kernel keyring doesn't get swapped to disk (unless big_key type is used) and it can automatically time out.
A general overview of the keyring facility is given here:
More documentation is available on the man page of keyctl
Module exports all functions by default.
All functions "die" with a proper message on errors.
