Hello All,

isn't there the option in Centos7 to create user without password?
Is this also for reasons of kickstart or such as well?

I had an unpleasant conversation with my brother-in-law at Christmas dinner last year.
I am a sysadmin who "encourages" his users to have good password behavior. 
He is a Java developer who is encouraged by his sysadmin, and he doesn't like it.

His point in short: passwords are not all that important any more.
All virus spreading and hacking these days is done by sending malicous mails and by visiting malicious sites.

Greetings, Johan
