Encrypt Devices Using dm-crypt and LUKS

“There are many different methods to encrypt data using various encryption algorithms (ciphers). In this document I describe in short how to encrypt a device with one of the most contemporary methods, using dm-crypt and LUKS. Actually, devices cannot be encrypted. It’s the block devices which are volumes that can be. This means that you can encrypt a hard disk partition, a ZIP disk, a usb flash stick, or even a volume within a file.”
