[kwlug-disc] How do you keep tabs of your GPG, SSH, and SSL keys?

I have a similar situation, and have been thinking about this recently too.

I have let more and more of my data be managed in git, so I have been 
kicking around whether to try transparent encryption in git itself:
https://github.com/shadowhand/git-encrypt

Or just keeping my git repository on an encrypted store on both the 
server and every client.


I also came across the open password file format for 
1Password(proprietary OXS app) which might be useful for storing 
passwords in git.

And for one more thing that I have looked at but not yet used: Firefox 
Sync 
http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-sync-take-your-bookmarks-and-tabs-with-you

Encrypted everything on the client, but it is probably not useful 
outside of Firefox. You can use their service for storing information, 
but in theory you can also run your own server.
