Can I use autologon password?

Apr 1, 2014 at 1:36 PM
I need to use the password stored by Boxstarter (for autologon). For instance I need it to do a Subversion checkout.

Is it possible to get hold of the password? Where is it stored?

Thanks!

Boxstarter goes to a fair amount of effort to ensure that packages cannot access the password. I can understand the utility of this for personal packages but imagine the risks if a package could sniff the password of the running process which has admin privileges.

Well, that seems reasonable! Thanks for the quick rresponse.
