Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 203834
logged in as a local user, smartcard is inserted, screen locks, unlocking wants smartcard password rather than local user password
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:33 EST
Description of problem:
If logged in as a local user, with a smartcard inserted later (such as in the
case of wanting to enroll a new card), and the screen locks, unlocking wants
smartcard password rather than local user password. This seems very bad! It
should ask for the password of the person who actually logged in, not of the
card that it can't yet handle (note: the card in question was enrolled with a
previously existing Cert server, which may have confused things).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. get a smartcard which has been enrolled, but not with the cert server whose
info is known to esc
2. log in as a local user, and then insert the smartcard
3. have the screen lock, and try to log back in
It'll ask for the smartcard password (which is unlikely to work, since it's not
yet correctly enrolled).
Ask for the password of the local user who actually logged in!
This is an unintended side effect of the semantic in bug 204978. In this case it
is a bug.
This is clearly a duplicate.
