Live CD login info needed

I created a Live CD using the livecd-iso-to-disk tool with the option to create a persistent overlay and I entered a passphrase to encrypt the home image. However when booted into the Live system I get a login screen. What username and password should I use? For username I’ve tried my system username, root, live system user, fedora and blank. For password I’ve tried the passphrase, my system password, and blank.

Default live-system username is liveuser, password is empty.
root access is available normally, by running su or prepending command with sudo .
If you create a new account or set passwords with passwd, that should probably be saved on persistent overlay, I haven’t tried it, so I don’t know.
