I'm using dropbear to unlock my lvm/luks partition on a remote server during system boot. I've added dropbear to initramfs and I can connect and authenticate using public keys. But unfortunately, using public keys is the only available option.
I know public key authentication is epic and generally considered to be so much superior to passwords, but nevertheless, I'd like to have the option to use a password. But dropbear doesn't list "password" as a valid authentication method.
How can I enable this? I was unable to find a configuration file for dropbear and my /etc/ssh/sshd_config allows me to use passwords. Also, I can login using passwords as soon as the system has booted and openssh takes over.
I'm on Ubuntu 16.04.1
