Package: gnome-pilot
Version: 0.1.54-1
Severity: wishlist

After reading Avi Rubin's notes about "Windows NT/2000 palm sync" from
comp.risks digests 21.04 and 21.05, I decided to do same experiment in
Linux machine. Avi's concern was that in Windows NT/2000, anyone
who has correct settings in his Palm (pilot username, etc.), can
successfully sync with PC, which keyboard has been locked and
depending on sync settings either wipe information from PC or collect
information from PC.
In my experiment, I waited until screensaver locked the system, put
pilot into craddle and pressed HotSync button in cradle. Result was
that it synced just beatifully. Unfortunately I didn't have any extra
Palms available so that I would have been able to check, how
easy/difficult it would be in reality to make other Palm to "fake" its
identity in comparison to guessing users password.
Anyway, this is gnome-pilot specific problem, because pilotmgr and
pilot-link don't provide any tools (that I would be aware of ) for
automating sync to happen, when you press HotSync button in
cradle. Solution for the problem would be that gpilotd would somehow
check from xscreensaver or from someother source, whether or not
terminal is locked before it allows sync to happen.
