DESCRIPTION
       systemd-ask-password-console.service is a system service that queries the user for system
       passwords (such as hard disk encryption keys and SSL certificate passphrases) on the
       console. It is intended to be used during boot to ensure proper handling of passwords
       necessary for boot.  systemd-ask-password-wall.service is a system service that informs
       all logged in users for system passwords via wall(1). It is intended to be used after boot
       to ensure that users are properly notified.

       See the developer documentation[1] for more information about the system password logic.

       Note that these services invoke systemd-tty-ask-password-agent(1) with either the --watch
       --console or --watch --wall command line parameters.
