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
integritysetup utilities to conveniently configure the
dm-integrity block integrity kernel modules.
