This wish relates to a few wishes of others also (but will hopefully be a bit more complete)
e.g.Add 'my privacy file' in D+The function of the control of reading filesMy own comment on Wishlist v6 on Dec 07 2007
And of course my other comments when I was seeking help to try to do this with existing features here
Anyway, the wish roughly goes like this:
I have private files. PGP keys. A keepass file. My thunderbird email.
The only program which *ever* needs to read my PGP keys is PGP.
The only program which *ever* needs to read my keepass file is keepass
The only program which *ever* needs to read my thunderbird email files is thunderbird.
I'd like to be able to limit my PGP keys to only being able to be read by PGP.
and so forth with keepass.
I can currently block all
access to a file using My Blocked Files. Now if only I could create exceptions
to this (like one can with protected files) for particular programs then the problem would be entirely solved.
Maybe it is important to have a 'my blocked files' which *can not* be overridden for super-protection of those files. Great! I agree! Alternatives are then to be able to set the level of protection on 'My protected files' (e.g. read/write/execute) or create an equivalent to 'my protected files' which is for reading
of files, not just writing them.
D+ is so, so very close to doing this now. So close I can smell it. It smells good.
