#341 closed System Defect (fixed)

Disk encryption - double entry of password does not lead to warning

Reported by: SolarCatcher Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: System Configuration Version: 8.1
Keywords: disc encryption, password check Cc: trac-bugs@…


The installer offers a quick way to chose disc encryption. After that the user is asked to enter the password/passphrase twice. However, there is no warning displayed when the two are not equal.

When I deliberately tried it, the installation process broke off later and I would believe it is due to the different passwords. However, this problem should be identified and signalled to the user at the time s/he enters the password/passphrase (similar to how Warden handles the double-entered root and user passwords).

(not sure if "me too" posts are helpful, but....) I have similarly noticed (under 8.1) that putting in two different passphrases does not lead to any warning by the installer GUI. Would be good if the user was required to enter the same passphrase each time before progressing.
