disk encryption support - startup scripts

Cryptsetup provides an interface for configuring encryption on block devices (such as /home or swap partitions), using the Linux kernel device mapper target dm-crypt. It features integrated Linux Unified Key Setup (LUKS) support.

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.
