Description Michal Nowak 2009-05-14 10:32:03 EDT
Description of problem:

[root@hp-ml370g4-01 ~]# ecryptfs-manager 

eCryptfs key management menu
	1. Add passphrase key to keyring
	2. Add public key to keyring
	3. Generate new public/private keypair
	4. Exit

Make selection: 3
Select key type to use for newly created files: 
 1) openssl
Selection: 1
SSL key file path [/root/.ecryptfs/pki/openssl/key.pem]: 
>>> ask for confirmation HERE <<<
Returning to main menu

ecryptfs-manager should ask for password confirmation when creating openssl key, so we are (more) sure that the user inserted the password they wanted to. I guess it's common practice.
