Calamares disk encryption password rules too lax
Open, WishlistPublic


On the live installer, the password entered for the disk encryption is so loose that one could even create a password of 1. The rules for creating the user's password are much stricter and I believe the rules should be the same between the two passwords.

The issue here is that the tools (Calamares and gnome-initial-setup) use completely different technology.
One would have to implement a password quality checker for Calamares upstream as well.
