Linux Unified Key Setup (LUKS) is commonly used by Linux to encrypt storage media volumes. LUKS is implemented in the Linux kernel in dm-crypt (dm = Device Mapper) and the user-space component cryptsetup.
+
The '''libqcow''' package contains a library and applications to read the [[QCOW_Image_Format | QEMU Copy-On-Write (QCOW) image]] format.
  
LUKS supports various encryption methods, like:

* [[AES]]

The '''libqcow''' package contains the following tools:
* [[Anubis]]
+
* '''qcowinfo''', which shows the information about QCOW files.
* [[Blowfish|BlowFish]]
+
* '''qcowmount''', which FUSE mounts QCOW image files.
* [[Cast5]]
+
* [[Cast6]]
+
* [[Serpent]]
+
* [[Twofish|TwoFish]]
+
  
These encryption methods can be used in various chaining modes and with various initialization vector modes.
