Dumb question, is there any way to grab the password when creating a new user as plaintext when using the builtin stuff? Even if its through the admin interface as users will not be able to self register, but I have a registration form that the sales people use to sign clients up. I need to pass it to python-gpg to generate the key. I then associate the fingerprint with the user, and export the private key to a file that gets encrypted as well. I then download that private key, decrypt it, and save it a memory stick that gets given to the client.
There will be no saving of the password in plaintext before anybody worries.
I am thinking of extending the User model. Is there a signal I can use? My issue is that django basically hashes it immediately, and I can't figure out how to intercept it before it gets hashed.
