I would like to use Ubuntu's
start-stop-daemon to start my application, but the application protects some sensitive information, so I have a mechanism where the application prompts for a password that's then used to generate a hashkey, which is used as the secret key for a symmetric encryption (AES) to encrypt and decrypt things from a database.
I'd like to daemonize this application and have it run from
start-stop-daemon, so that
sudo service appname stop and
sudo service appname start would work, but, I'm not sure how to go about doing this with the added complexity of a password prompt.
Is there something that supports this or do I have to program it from scratch? I figured I should ask first before re-inventing the wheel.
Thanks in advance.
