[New: openFATE 318809] Add support for unlocking LUKS root volumes during boot process via SSH
Feature added by: Björn Voigt (bjoernv)

Feature #318809, revision 1
Title: Add support for unlocking LUKS root volumes during boot process via SSH

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Björn Voigt (bjoernv)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Unlocking a openSUSE system with full disk encryption is currently done locally
on the console with a passphrase input. Systems installed with distributions
like Debian and Ubuntu can be unlocked via SSH:

There is a DRACUT module in development for this feature:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=524727

Use Case:
Servers which are controlled via remote control can be easily unlocked via SSH.
The feature simplifies the management of full disk encrypted servers, because
starting and restarting servers can be done without local console access.
