[Mono-dev] Equivalent of DPAPI in Linux / Status of ProtectedData ?

In Windows/.NET, we can access the DPAPI via the ProtectedData class.
According to http://www.mono-project.com/Cryptography, "There is partial
support for ProtectedData and ProtectedMemory on Mono. On Windows Mono will
use DPAPI (Data Protection API) for increased interoperability, while it
will use its own implementation on other operating systems. "
=> Is it possible to have any details about this "own implementation"? How
secure it is? On which mechanism/other software it relies in Linux?
Many thanks in advance,
