Since v248 systemd has gained the ability to unlock LUKS device via a FIDO2 key[1]. However, on Arch, a missing udev rule file causes systemd-cryptsetup to fail when looking for a security token. Please consider adding this file, 60-fido-id.rules, when generating the initramfs.


When systemd-cryptsetup tries to unlock LUKS with a FIDO key, it registers a udev monitor[3] looking for devices with a "security-token" tag[2], which is assigned in 60-fido-id.rules. Without this rule, systemd cannot find the token even if it is plugged, resulting in a failure to unlock LUKS.


Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

systemd 248-1
libfido2 1.6.0-1
cryptsetup 2.3.5-1
This task depends upon

Fixed for systemd 248-2.

Grazzolini, the library is dlopen()ed, so possibly you need to add that manually... Not sure how dracut handles these things.

I'm thinking here if this should be a hook or part of core mkinitcpio. But, it seems only that lib is needed, right?

Also, for dracut, I think we'll have to add a bug report upstream.

Should "installing and this" belong in the "sd-encrypt" hook? That hook is currently a part of cryptsetup, but is it better to distribute with systemd instead?
Comment by Christian Hesse (eworm) - Saturday, 03 April 2021, 19:54 GMT
Yes, probably this should move to the sd-encrypt hook as that brings systemd-cryptsetup into the initramfs...
Will figure the details as is and move if everything works.

Yes, this probably belongs on sd-encrypt.

/usr/lib/udev/fido_id also need to be added.
In systemd hook, add_udev_rule() automatically adds it. But in sd-encrypt, it doesn't.

Ah, right... Fixed in cryptsetup 2.3.5-3.
