[SOLVED] Are good passwords really required for a home desktop system?
My understanding is one of the weakest links to security is system users. I suspect quite a few home desktop users have a machine which is physically reasonably secure ... if someone breaks into my house the last thing I am worried about is security of PC data!
For users to create good passwords, and updating them on a regular basis may be desirable ... but can be counter productive - post-it notes with passwords etc.:eek:
If ssh server is not installed, and local only user login is set through /etc/security/access.conf then are secure passwords really required?
If this approach is taken, what is the real increase in security risk?
