NAME

       thread-keyring - Per-thread keyring

DESCRIPTION

       The  thread  keyring  is a keyring used to anchor keys on behalf of a process.  It is only
       created when a thread requests it.

       A special serial number value, KEY_SPEC_THREAD_KEYRING, is defined that  can  be  used  in
       lieu of the calling thread's thread keyring's actual serial number.

       From  the  keyctl  utility,  '@t' can be used instead of a numeric key ID in much the same
       way, but as keyctl is a program run after forking, this is of no utility.

       Thread keyrings are not inherited across clone() and are cleared by  execve().   A  thread
       keyring is destroyed when the thread that refers to it exits.

       If  a  thread  doesn't  have a thread keyring when it is accessed, then the thread keyring
       will be created if the keyring is to be modified, otherwise error ENOKEY will be issued.
