Version: 0.44 (using KDE 3.5.6, Kubuntu (feisty) 4:3.5.6-0ubuntu14)
Compiler: Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS: Linux (i686) release 2.6.20-16-generic
Since SANE 1.0.4 user authentication using some basic encryption is included into saned. This encryption is supported by scanimage and XSane. Since saned have some lack of security, it would be nice if kooka supported this as well.
Sometimes Kooka can crash if authentication is required, see bug 81177.
Even if there is no crash, saned user authentication is a needed feature.
