===============================
Gfsecret is a set of tools to facilitate secret sharing according to the
Adi Shamir’s secret sharing scheme.

With such a configuration, _gfse-use_ will attempt to reconstruct the
file `/home/alice/mysecret`, using at least two of the three available
shares: one available on the local filesystem, one on a USB storage
device with the label `MYSTICK`, and one on a MTP-compliant device with
the serial number `RF2GB6X704P`. Gfsec-use will automatically detect
the serial number `RF2GB6X704P`. _Gfsec-use_ will automatically detect
which devices are currently connected and will fetch from them the
corresponding shares.
Once the secret file has been reconstructed (if enough shares are
available), gfsec-use will spawn a new shell (or any other program
available), _gfsec-use_ will spawn a new shell (or any other program
specified on its command line). When the shell (or the user-specified
command) terminates, the reconstructed secret file will be automatically
deleted.
