Passphrase in section 3.3

Passphrase in 3.3, what is it about? What is it protecting and how do I set it?

That section is talking about obfuscating the passphrase to connect to a wireless network. By default, netctl stores the passphrase to connect to a wireless network in plaintext. If a nefarious user is able to read the passphrase stored on your system, then they can connect to your wireless network. Obfuscating the passphrase just makes this more difficult to do. Section 3.3 explains how to obfuscate the passphrase.

Thank you, now it is clear. Doru001 (talk) 06:30, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

netctl does not start at boot

I carefully followed the instructions on this page and on the Beginner's Guide to migrate from netcfg to netctl and, as I said here, netctl does not start at boot. Please tell me what is wrong and, if necessary, complete the instructions.--Doru001 (talk) 14:01, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
