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.

LUKS supports various encryption methods, like:

  • AES
  • Anubis
  • BlowFish
  • Cast5
  • Cast6
  • Serpent
  • TwoFish

These encryption methods can be used in various chaining modes and with various initialization vector modes.
