Title: Check password strength for encrypted LVM
- openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
+ openSUSE Distribution: Done
Requested by: Arnold Mesper (amesper)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org
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
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):
: Especially novice users must be warned if password is
weak for LVM, as with weak passwords, full disk encryption is useless.
