You can rename it adopting the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file
(that matches the hardware and assigns a persistent interface name for it).
See also /lib/udev/rules.d/75-persistent-net-generator.rules - AFAIR default
is to use same name base as the driver.

I know. This is not the point here - just wanted to mention.

The "good" solution would be to do something as suggested in #3, basically
generate a new /etc/lanpasswd (wherever, whatever name ...) similar to
/etc/passwd and put such information there - with an appropriate encryption
mechanism.

The quick fix IMHO would be to add a chmod 0400 / chown root.root for each and
every ifcfg-** - file into yast - that _should_ be done to 11.3 at least
because this fix is a showstopper for me - given this, wireless passwords are
just for fun.

Thank you for looking into this
