Gringotts encryption for Trac
Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.
Gringotts is a GTK-based application for storing sensitive information (eg passwords, files, etc.) in an encrypted form. Gringotts itself is GPL-licensed.
This Trac plugin adds a semi-secure area for storing such information. It is essentially a mini-wiki which has an ACL (Access Control List) associated with the content. Everything stored in the database is encrypted with a 2048 key that is automatically generated when you install this plugin for the first time. The key is kept in the
trac.ini file. Make sure you take a backup, because if the key is lost, then so is the data kept in Gringotts!
You can either use the list of Gringotts as your main interface (it adds a navigation item), or you can use the Macro
[[Gringott(NameOfGringlet)]] where every wiki syntax is supported.
To create a new Gringlet click on the create link in the lower right corner of the box that just appeared. You can now enter all your secrets. ACL's are entered as comma or space separated usernames.
Gringotts is also the name of the bank in the Harry Potter books.
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.
Download the zipped source from here.
The simplest way to install this plugin is to download the zipped source, unzip it into the directory of your choice (/tmp or such), and run the following from the 0.10 directory:

If you're using Trac version 0.10 or 0.11, then you can use
with a possible correction for the version number.

[components] gringotts.* = enabled
If this is your first installation of Gringotts, you will need to upgrade your Trac project, to update the database schema and generate the private key:
trac-admin /path/to/your/project upgrade
