This crate is a Rust interface to KyNc plugins.
What is the purpose of KyNc and this crate?
Short: Abstracting key management away.
Long: KyNc defines and this crate implements a plugin interface, that allows to use plugins for key management. Your app generates a random key to do something and the user can specify how this key is stored. Some users may install a plugin that uses GnuPG to seal the key, some people may load a plugin that uses a password to encrypt the key, and some companies may use their own custom plugins that integrate perfectly in their environment. And they only need to do it once – because if a specific plugin has been created, it can be used with all applications that implement KyNc.

. Currently none – but I'm working on a GnuPG plugin to utilize my Yubikey
