The keyring supports the following backends:

os       Uses the operating system's default credentials store.
file Uses encrypted file-based keystore within the app's configuration directory.
This keyring will request a password each time it is accessed, which may occur
multiple times in a single command resulting in repeated password prompts.
kwallet Uses KDE Wallet Manager as a credentials management application.
pass Uses the pass command line utility to store and retrieve keys.
test Stores keys insecurely to disk. It does not prompt for a password to be unlocked
and it should be use only for testing purposes.

kwallet and pass backends depend on external tools. Refer to their respective documentation for more information: KWallet pass
