Package description for 'cryptsetup-luks'

Linux Unified Key Setup - Tool to encrypt filesystems

 LUKS is the upcoming standard for Linux hard disk encryption. By
 providing a standard on-disk-format, it does not only facilitate
 compatibility among distributions, but also provide secure management of
 multiple user passwords. In contrast to existing solution, LUKS stores
 all setup necessary setup information in the partition header, enabling
 the user to transport or migrate his data seamlessly.
 While LUKS is a standard on-disk format, there is also a reference
 implementation. LUKS for dm-crypt is implemented in an enhanced version
 of cryptsetup.
