                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. <code class="filename">systemd-ask-password-wall.service</code>
                is a system service that informs all logged in users

                is intended to be used after boot to ensure that users
