"Please unlock disk luks-2312392131231-12312-123123" → "Please unlock your device"
Is it possible to just make the name friendlier? Perhaps name it on installation ($SYSTEMNAME-disk) or display it like a credit card: "disk ending -1234".
This assumes that the name is authenticated in some way. If not, displaying the name is pointless.
Thanks for your input :)
Unfortunately, leaking the name of the system would probably leak the user's name which seems sub-optimal from a privacy point of view.
I did also try truncating the long names too but it was still unfriendly compared to the far slicker:
(ie. saying -1234 is really kinda useless to the end user and is overly distracting detail)
You can always get the entire, full, nerdy details if you press ESC.
ACK and I even looked at this ticket yesterday - we are still semi-blocking on the cryptroot and other refactorings in the Debian stuff but after that we will be able to merge this quickly. :)
