Mac OS X has a "security" command that apparently can manipulate and display Keychain information. I say "apparently" because the man page is a little less than enlightening, and so far any Google searches have come up dry - well, not dry really, but too many not quite related results. When command names are the same as already over-loaded words, Google search doesn't help much.
That doesn't stop me from playing, which is rather easy: just type "security -i" and then "h" at the prompt. That will list all the commands it understands, but you'll need to type carefully: security either doesn't have backspace processing or is hardwired for some other terminal.
So far, I remain somewhat confused. If anyone can point me at better docs, I'd sure appreciate it. No particular need here; just idle curiosity.
Got something to add? Send me email.
