LUKS

GUI for mounting LUKS containers or partitions.

Luks is used to encrypt a device or a container file. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dm-crypt


The container files can also be opened with Debian/Ubuntu. Luks container files can also be opened with Android, there the app is also called Luks Manager. https://market.android.com/details?id=com.nemesis2.luksmanager If the container file was created with "vfat" as file system, you can also open the file in windows. http://www.freeotfe.org/

After creating the container fiels, you can mount it with the password. The path is /media/YourName, so just like a normal directory. After unmounting the container file the directory disappears.

A partition is also mounted as a directory in /media.

IMPORTANT: Luks is not Truecrypt. On the DM8000 some problems were noticed by the betatesters (creating a container file).
