ryptsetup is utility used to conveniently setup disk encryption based on dm-crypt kernel module, including plain dm-crypt volumes, LUKS volumes, loop-AES and TrueCrypt compatible format.
Cryptsetup is backwards compatible with the on-disk format of cryptoloop, but also supports more secure formats. This package includes support for automatically configuring encrypted devices at boot time via the config file /etc/crypttab. Additional features are cryptoroot support through initramfs-tools and several supported ways to read a passphrase or key.
