Actually not only keychain, but any other apps that request it in any way.

The problem first appeared when Adium asked me about untrusted certificates, I selected "Always trust" in system "view certificate" window, and it hung. Then I killed adium, and since then no app can access keychain.

After killing any hung app we can see the following stacktrace:

I found some other reports on the internet, but all of them said 'after that everything began to fail so we've reinstalled Lion'. But I don't like this option, there should be some way to manually delete a failing certificate.

    A quick fix for the dialog is (usually): sudo pkill SecurityAgent – docwhat May 1 '15 at 15:04

I always get this problem when using Remote Desktop. Even though race_carr's answer to reset the keychain will likely work, I think the process is too destructive. What I just did was go into keychain and clean up the login->certificates section by removing duplicate, untrusted, and old certificates. That fixed the freezing problem.

    Thanks for this, I visited the KeychainAccess and saw I had already trusted the RDP host, but with another IPadress. I removed this cert and now iy works again :) – DagW May 8 '15 at 7:44

I would recommend resetting to a new/default keychain and see if that resolves the issue. Keep in mind that any stored passwords, keys, secure notes, or certificates will be deleted when you do this.

In Keychain Access.app under Preferences choose "Reset My Default Keychain" and then restart (for good measure). See also: Reset Mac OS X Keychain.

  • Thank you race_carr. I have been fighting with this problem for months! – user77084 Apr 30 '14 at 15:07
  • Maybe an up vote? – race_carr Apr 30 '14 at 15:23

    Just to add to this, if you can access Keychain Access long enough you can also use Keychain First Aid (under the Keychain Access menu) to verify and if needed repair your keychain. – Mr Rabbit Apr 30 '14 at 15:31
