This patchset implements a new responder like service in SSSD called
secrets. It uses the Custodia project API to offer a service where
applications/users can store secrets in a way that makes requests
remotizable and routable with a high degree of configurability (esp, in
conjunction with a Custodia proxy).
Included are also accessory patches to change the monitor and other
aspects of service startup and monitoring necessary to have this new
kind of service which is more independent than the pam/nss based
There is no testsuite for the service yet.
The work is also not complete in that the monitor does not start the
service yet, I have an experimental unit file I am working on but it is
not fully functional and not included yet..
I do not expect all patches to be accepted right away, but they all work
individually (manually tested), but I think it is a good time to start
review and bring in what works, as we are going to spread some of the
remaining work across multiple people.
