Change The Default Password
For better security, you must change the password for the user ‘pi’. Choose a sensible password, but not too complicated else you’d risk forgetting it.
- Connect to your Pi via SSH if you havn’t done so already (refer to page 7)
- Run the command passwd.
- Enter the default password ‘raspberry’. There is no feedback so again you have to enter your password blind.
- You’d be prompted to enter a new password.
- Type in your new password now and press ENTER.
- Re-enter your new password as a verification.
- If successful you’d see the message ‘passwd: password updated successfully’. Like so:
- Remember this new password. You have to use this new password for the username ‘pi’ every time you want to SSH to your Pi from now.

ARMv7 edition of Snakeoil is not ready yet. Hopefully I can find some time to implement that in the coming months.

Great article, I just add one thing…you should tell to look for the permissions of the folders where the private keys are. I’ve got some issues when i tried to connect to HTTPs and was resolve by changing the permissions of home assistant user for that folders.
Maybe because of the version of hass.io - 0.82.1

Is the IMG file of Snakeoil ready for Raspberry Pi 3B installation? Is it as easy as volumio or Runeaudio for installation of the Snakeoil just by flashing it onto a micro SD card and inserting it to the Raspberry Pi so simple? Where is the location of all the OS installation files stored on the web? Can I have the relevant link here to search them out and have a trial?

Yes, the IMG file works with all versions of Raspberry Pis - mainly because it’s 32 bits.
All the Intel ISOs and IMGs are in one location, follow the “Version” link in this article to get the latest image to use.
