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.

Interests include Software architecture, computer languages, parallel computing, parallel processor architectures, and supporting open-source software. Software contributions include development of the [[hashdb]] tool, development of the [[Bulk Extractor Viewer]] User Interface (used to browse Features extracted using the [[Bulk Extractor]] digital media triage tool), some of the Bulk Extractor scanners, the jlibewf and libewfcs readers, and implementations of high speed encryption and hashing algorithms that run on the Cell Broadband Engine processor.

LUKS supports various encryption methods, like:
+
* [[AES]]
+
* [[Anubis]]
+
* [[Blowfish|BlowFish]]
+
* [[Cast5]]
+
* [[Cast6]]
+
* [[Serpent]]
+
* [[TwoFish]]
+
 
+
These encryption methods can be used in various chaining modes and with various initialization vector modes.

Bruce Allen is a Research Associate at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California.

Interests include Software architecture, computer languages, parallel computing, parallel processor architectures, and supporting open-source software. Software contributions include development of the hashdb tool, development of the Bulk Extractor Viewer User Interface (used to browse Features extracted using the Bulk Extractor digital media triage tool), some of the Bulk Extractor scanners, the jlibewf and libewfcs readers, and implementations of high speed encryption and hashing algorithms that run on the Cell Broadband Engine processor.
