Why does the user password have to be so strong?
Qubes is probably the most secure system in the world… I am extremely careful (no human vulnerability). I encrypted my hard disk, when I installed Qubes.
I imagine that the user password is only used to protect the physical access to the content of my machine: for example, to avoid that my wife looks at my machine when I go to have a coffee
Humor set aside, if my machine is stolen, it is true that a “good” password is preferable. But will the thief have to type it on the keyboard or can a robot do the brute force?
I imagine that some thieves are well equipped, and that they can physically connect their machine to the keyboard of my machine…
What do you think?
Does Qubes accept a limited number of password attempts?
