[New: openFATE 317039] NM VPN connect not prompt for root password
Feature added by: David Hodgson (jetojedno)

Feature #317039, revision 1
Title: NM VPN connect not prompt for root password

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: David Hodgson (jetojedno)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
For defined VPNs, NM (via policykit) always prompts for root password when
connect VPN. This is an error.

NM should prompt (when necessary) for authentication when VPN is defined, and
then not prompt again when starting the VPN.

Use Case:
Define VPN for laptop to connect back to base.

User uses VPN to connect.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: Giving users the root password is a major security risk.
