Feature #319626, revision 1 Title: Check password strength for encrypted LVM
openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed Priority Requester: Important
Requested by: Arnold Mesper (amesper) Partner organization: openSUSE.org
Description: A simple password check is done only when selecting encrypted LVM in the main installation screen. No check is done, when creating encrypted LVM via expert partitioner. The same check as performed for user passwords (using cracklib) should be available for encrypted LVMs too - both in the main installation screen as well as in the expert partitioner.
The user must be able to accept using a weak password, thus the password strength check must only issue a warning (and not mandate a minimum password length like now in the main installation screen). This is necessary in order to allow testing an installation without having to remember a complex password.
Business case (Partner benefit): openSUSE.org: Especially novice users must be warned if password is weak for LVM, as with weak passwords, full disk encryption is useless.
