cryptmount assists system administrators in setting up encrypted filesystems based on the device mapper (dm-crypt) of GNU/Linux systems using a 2.6-series kernel. After initial setup, it allows any user to mount or unmount filesystems on demand, solely by providing the decryption password, with any system devices needed to access the filing system being configured automatically. A wide variety of encryption schemes (provided by the kernel and libgcrypt library) can be used to protect both the filing system and the access key. The protected filing systems can reside in either ordinary files or disk partitions.
