General :: Why Does Changing A Truecrypt Password Take Such A Long Time

May 31, 2010

I am changing the password of a truecrypt file container. This takes around 1 minute. Why?

time truecrypt --text --change /tmp/ --keyfiles= --new-keyfiles= --password=known --new-password=known --random-source=/dev/null"

If I use strace I see that it basically does not do anything: it simply reads lots of random data from /dev/urandom (even if i specified /dev/null as random source) and finally changes the password:

open("/dev/urandom", O_RDONLY) = 6
read(6, "36&{35121221234320234313242312I326235245224300354O)270Q200 201J227224311_212367"..., 640) = 640
close(6) = 0

Jul 23, 2009

I am an absolute Linux Beginner who is being required to do a bit of admin work because the boss just fired the old linux admin. Unfortunately, one of our employees cannot remember her password to her email account and as such I need to reset it on our linux server.What I want to check is that this email account is actually a linux user account and I simply will reset the password for it using the passwd command from the root login. Is that correct?

Ubuntu :: No Login / Password User Interface?

Feb 11, 2010

My desktop won't come up automatically now on a hard disk of mine (see below for the Ubuntu version history). It does boot up with Grub etc; then the Ubuntu load up bar thing with the timer spinning around [I hope you can understand this technical language!] goes through ok but then instead of getting the user interface with the little boxes to enter my login and password, the whole screen is in black (as if it's in Terminal mode). This black screen then asks me for my login and password: when I entered them, it said:

Starting up......loading, please wait
19 + 0 records in
19 + 0 records out
kinit: [followed by a load of technical stuff and a series of numbers]
kinit: trying to resume from /dev/disk/ by-uuid/9b [then a whole series of numbers]
kinit: no resume image, doing normal boot.

Ubuntu :: Login Password Keeps Changing?

Jul 6, 2010

Last night I had rebooted my machine and when it came back up it would no longer accept my password. My 7 year old son had been playing on the machine earlier so I assumed he inadvertently reset my password to something else. I rebooted again, added the rw init=/bin/bash was able to get in and reset my password. That worked, I was able to access with no problem. I was able to perform admin tasks, it would prompt for password and accept the password. I just went to edit a config file and all of a sudden it is no longer accepting my password again and (my son has been no where near it)?!!?

I am not even sure where to start troubleshooting this - I know I can reboot and reset the password again - but is there a way to figure out how this is happening.

Ubuntu :: Prevent Users From Changing Their Password?

Jul 17, 2010

I use the following method for preventing the users from changing their passwords , is there any other method other than this ?

ls -l /usr/bin/passwd
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 37140 2010-01-26 12:09 /usr/bin/passwd

so we need to remove the suid for that command as follows :- chmod u-s /usr/bin/passwd now normal users won't be able to change their own passwords - and only the root user will be able to do it for them.

Ubuntu :: Accessing Desktop GUI After Changing Password?

Feb 25, 2011

I am running ubuntu 10.10 desktop, i have my /home on a seperate partition and its encrypted. Today i was changing my password on the all the machines in my house ( netbook, desktop x2 and server all ubuntu) and i didnt want to go in the bedroom to change the password on my one desktop, (pure laziness) so i did it through ssh using

sudo passwd lynx

now when i restarted it later on i realized i cannot log on to the GUI. I get an error "Could not update ICEauthority file /home/lynx/.ICEauthority" and "There is a problem with the configuration server. (/usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)" also "Nautilus could not create the following required folders:/home/lynx/Desktop,/home/Lynx/.nautilus. Before running nautilus ,create the folders or set the permissions so that nautilus can create them".

Ubuntu :: Changing Session Type When Login In Without Password?

Sep 26, 2010

I am unable to change session type when not requiring passord on login.

How requiring password was changed:

System/Administration/Users and Groups
Clicked on my User
Clicked "Change" next to "Password: Asked on login"
Checked the checkbox for "Don't ask for password on login"
OK'd, everything

Please try this yourself as it might be hard to understand. But the option to change session type (ie: Gnome failsafe instead of reguar Gnome) is only visable along side with the password field.

Is it possible to make the session type setting visable without requiering password on login?

Ubuntu Servers :: AD Auth - Changing Password At Logon

Nov 17, 2010

I have succesfully set up authentication manually in Ubuntu so users can log on with Windows Active Directory accounts and have their network drives mapped automatically using pam_mount.

Please note due to the setup I can't make any changes to the Windows 2k3 server.

If a user wants their password reset I can change it to a generic password. When they next log on to a Windows computer with the generic password it will automatically ask them to change it to something else.

Is there anyway to get this to work with Ubuntu 10.10? At the moment when logging onto Ubuntu with an account that is in this state the message Please change your password appears, it then proceds to log on without prompting to change the password and natually it won't map the drives etc.

Ubuntu Security :: 9.04 Jaunty Encrypted Account And Password Changing?

Mar 10, 2010

When I first installed 9.04 (from scratch), I chose the option to have my entire account encrypted... I used the same password as my login password, and wrote down the key hash that it displayed for me just like instructed... everything was working terrific...Well, yesterday, I wanted to change my account password. I changed my account password, and it took effect immediately (I tested it by using "sudo -s" to see if I could elevate to root from the terminal... worked just fine). Being satisfied with my new password, I shut my computer down...

The next time I started it up and tried to log in to my account, it I put in my username and password and pressed enter, and it accepted it just fine, and started to boot to my desktop... it then immediately prompted me with something about "your session lasted less than 10 seconds, try starting in failsafe mode" or something along those lines, and immediately booted me out and back to the gdm login screen... I thought it was just a glitch so I tried again... same thing... gave me the "less than 10 seconds" prompt and booted me back to the gdm...

I thought maybe my filesystem became corrupted, but I didn't give up... I attempted to login to my fiancee's account, and it worked just fine! Using her account, I was able to quickly and safely boot into her desktop environment with no errors...I opened a terminal and used the "su" command to access my account... When I did this, it gave me some kind of error and told me to run ecryptfs (can't remember exactly which command... now). I ran ecryptfs and put in my NEW password... it told me that the passphrase was incorrect. So just out of curiosity, I ran it again, and this time put in my OLD passphrase, and it worked immediately! At this point, I realized that my gdm login password got changed, but my ecryptfs passphrase did not, and the two were not matching up (I assume that on login, gdm passes this password on to ecryptfs, and that when the two did not match up, it was booting me out with the whole "session lasted less than 10 seconds" prompt...)...

So what I did at this point was, while logged into my girlfriend's account, I "su"'d into my account, and used the passwd command to change my password back to my OLD password... once the password was changed back successfully, I restarted my computer and tried to log into my account from the gdm... worked perfectly this time with the old (original) password...When you change your session password, shouldn't it automatically change the encyrption password to match? Or at the very least, warn you that if your account is encrypted, you must take further steps to make these two passphrases match? Also, what command would I use to change my "ecryptfs" password to manually match my session password?

Ubuntu Security :: Restrict Users Password Changing To Themself

May 11, 2010

I want the users to access servers via ssh public key only. By default they don't know their initial password and do need to change that when performing administrative tasks.For changing their passwords without knowing the old they need to switch to root for this special case.The only case it seems I don't have control is that users can not only change their password but also the password of other peoples. Does someone sees a solution (without apparmor/selinux and special /usr/bin/ to restrict users to only change their password?I miss the feature of using environment variables in sudoers file.

Fedora :: Restricting User From Changing Own Password In 10?

Jul 16, 2009

I hope I am in the right forum. I have a question about restricting users from being able to change their own passwords in Fedora 10. In Fedora 6, I was able to do this by using passwd with -n and -x flags. If I would set the -n value greater than the -x value, then the user would not be able to change his/her own password. If I do this in Fedora 10, this no longer works
