GPG: Add Option to force passphrase constraints for symmetric encryption, too
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Esp. for VS-NfD it would be useful to have the passphrase constraints also for symmetric encryption.

My suggestion would be:

FWIW, --enforce-passphrase-constraints does already work for symmetric-only encryption since 2.2.21 (rGae8b88c635424ef3). Thus this bug is actually a feature request to have a separate set of passphrase constraints option for symmetric-only mode.

Won't be implemented as a new option because --check-sym-passphrase-pattern and --check-passphrase-pattern (since 2.2.30) can be used to implement the same in a more flexible way.
