Key Ring refers to a software tool that allows users to manage and monitor their API keys. API keys are used to access APIs, which allow third-party developers to build applications that interact with data from another platform.
API keys are generated by the platform owner and given to the developer. The developer then adds the key to their application, which is used to authenticate the app with the platform.
Key ring provides a way for developers to keep track of their API keys and ensure that they are used properly. They also allow platform owners to monitor and revoke keys if necessary.
