GUI for mounting LUKS containers or partitions.

Luks is used to encrypt a device or a container file.

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. If the container file was created with "vfat" as file system, you can also open the file in windows.

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).
