A soft key (in-memory key) backend for Sequoia's private key store. The `sequoia-keystore` crate implements a server that manages secret key material. Secret key material can be stored in files, on hardware devices like smartcards, or accessed via the network. `sequoia-keystore` doesn't implement these access methods. This is taken care of by various backends. This crate includes a backend that provides access to secret key material stored in files. These are called soft keys in contrast to keys managed by a separate piece of hardware. If the keystore is configured to use `.local/share/sequoia` as its data directory, then the soft key backend uses `.local/share/sequoia/keystore/softkeys`. Specifically, it iterates over the files in that directory, and looks for binary encoded or ASCII-armor encoded OpenPGP certificates in files ending with `.pgp` or `.asc`; other files are silently ignored. ``` $ ls .local/share/sequoia/keystore/softkeys/ 1234.pgp 1234.pgp.rev alice.pgp alice.pgp.rev F44B66C85C9B7B02AF2D52FDEFF613897AD9CE21.pgp ```
