Description (last modified by pulkomandy)

This got a 35% must-have vote, and a 61% only-if-ready vote, so not an R1 requirement, but still a nice enhancement to have if it's ready in time.

Prop #21e Implement password management

Developer results

  • must-have (axeld, mmlr, yourpalal, zooey, ithamar, laplace, bonefish, Wim, sikosis, brecht)
  • only-if-ready (nielx, pulkomandy, umccullough, czeidler, jprostko, jonas.kirilla, scottmc, anevilyak, 3dEyes, stippi, leavengood, mmadia, colin, korli, tqh, phoudoin, humdinger)

Is this one complete now with "keystore" or is there more to be done?

Blocking: 7660 removed

(In #7660) Yes, there are a few problems left:

  • Can't join network with special chars (space or so) in the SSID or key
  • Network connection is unreliable and will drop after some time, without any notice.
  • wpa_supplicant can be crashed easily, and isn't restarted
  • if you enter the wrong key and fail connecting to a network, you have to reboot and start over

No, this one is for a website password manager in Web+, which we still don't have.

comment:7 by axeld, 9 years ago

Why add a separate password manager in Web+, and not use the one provided by the system?

comment:8 by pulkomandy, 9 years ago

Of course this should use the system-wide stuff to manage the passwords. It still has to be plugged into WebKit, to detect password fields in webpages and allow filling them.
