10.4: AirPort and System.keychain password solution
Authored by: eirich on Mar 23, '06 09:19:15PM

Yep. I figured as much but my tired, muddled brain didn't want to come up with something to write that showed I understood this already. Still though, previous versions of OS X allowed one to retrieve this information so why the change? I still had to put in a password to get it before. It's not like someone is going to get that information without mine or root's password. But really, it's more of an annoyance than anything else.

I would think it's a form of security through obscurity. Such forms of security almost always turn out to be more annoying and not so secure to begin with.
