1. Heavydeck
  2. hotluks



HotLUKS are a series of scripts targeted at encrypting whole block devices in-place (No intermediate copies) using Linux Unified Key Setup.

Originally presented as a sysadmin project for my university, it hasn't seen much development since. A faster, C version of this program has been on my ToDo list for a while. In the meantime, python3 should do the job.

How do I get set up?

Hotluks requires:

  • A recent cryptsetup version (for dettached header)
  • Python3
  • Write access to block devices (root?)
