In the template you create to use this image you have to provide your
"SSH_PUBLIC_KEY" so you can log in with ssh and your private key. Root
password is not set. So you can only log in through ssh. You might also
"chroot" the image (using a linux live environment like GRML [1]), set a
password there and log in through console or ssh with a password.

P.s make sure the image is "persistent" if you set a password, otherwise
your changes will be lost.
