MokSec - The Security Framework

There's apps that do this, like kdewallet. 
I was thinking of a picture pin entry.  You display a small set of
pictures with lots of detail, user must tap 1 or more points on each
Quick entry, good number of bits of encryption, easy to remeber.
Plus, when the phone comes up with a picture, to anybody else it just
looks like it's stuck booting or broken.

	I had some thoughts about that, too.
	Would be cool if it wasn't necessary to have a PIN at all - you
enter the PIN in the "first-run-wizard", that will store it.
	After that you only have one password (of your choise) that does
all - the security daemon would lookup in a key/password-database and
use your password for all things, like decrypting the other containers
(phonebook, messages, e.g.), authing you on the network with the stored
pin, unlocking the phone screen, .....
