Hi all I'm trying to create a small application which reads the stored wifi-passphrases. So far I know where they are stored. Unfortunately these directories are readable only for root the root user.

Using connman dbus interface I was able to get almost every information but the passphrase.

Does anyone know how to get the passphrase for a stored wifi connection?

I would say it's a security feature that you need root privileges to get that kind of information. It would be very bad design if every app could access this.
