I want to exclude the possibility that my secret keys are leaked
while I try to transfer them to different machines by some ways
(e.g. a use of USB sticks).
I know that it rarely happen, but I want to avoid the dangerousness
which can be avoided.

I'm very glad if my request is implemented on AUR4.
Thank you for your correspondence.
