Is QProcess safe?

  • Hi everyone,
    I would like to call a program with password string with QProcess in Linux. How is it safe this method?

  • Qt Champions 2017

    unless the password string is strongly encrypted it cannot be considered safe.
    Would be very easy to replace the program you call and get the password.

  • Hi,
    But the program is third party which i called.I can't modify that program.

    Ok. there is no option for encryption then., i guess.

    Who do you try to hide this password from?

    sending password as plain text is very unsafe and all to easy to steal.

    The third party programs offers ONLY plain text password as parameter?

    There is no other way to give this password to the program?
