cryptsetup 2.3.7

Set up transparent encryption of block devices using dm-crypt

Cryptsetup is a utility used to conveniently set up disk encryption based on the dm-crypt Linux kernel module. It is most often used to manage LUKS volumes but also supports plain dm-crypt volumes and loop-AES, TrueCrypt (including VeraCrypt extension), and BitLocker formats.

LUKS is the standard for hard disk encryption with the kernel Linux. It provides a standard on-disk-format compatible amongst distributions as well as secure management of multiple user passwords. LUKS stores all necessary setup information in the partition header to facilitate data transport and migration.

The package also includes the veritysetup and integritysetup utilities to conveniently configure the dm-verity and dm-integrity block integrity kernel modules.


Install cryptsetup 2.3.7 as follows:

guix install cryptsetup@2.3.7

Or install the latest version:

guix install cryptsetup

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
