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|BlowFish]]
 +
* [[Cast5]]
 +
* [[Cast6]]
 +
* [[Serpent]]
 +
* [[Twofish|TwoFish]]
 +
 
 +
These encryption methods can be used in various chaining modes and with various initialization vector modes.
