Projects / Luksus


Luksus makes it quick and easy to create encrypted volumes such as hard drives, USB sticks, and SD cards on Linux, FreeBSD, and DragonFlyBSD. It can also create encrypted file containers. It is a wrapper for Crypsetup (DM-LUKS), tcplay, and geli. It can also encrypt single files using GnuPG.

      Release Notes: This release has finally managed to remove regressions on FreeBSD. These bugs slowed down development of the rest of LUKSUS by half a year or maybe more. It is fully tested on FreeBSD and Linux. All features should be working and bugs fixed.

      •  08 Aug 2013 13:27

        Release Notes: This major stable release modularizes the code and supports several encryption engines. It has been tested significantly and adds support for FreeBSD.

        •  05 Mar 2013 21:07

          Release Notes: This release adds DragonFlyBSD support. LUKSUS has now gone from just theoretically supporting DragonFlyBSD to actually supporting it. Note that filecontainer encryption is also supported, but it must be noted that, for some reason, this takes a lot of time to achieve (about ten minutes for a 200mb filecontainer). Further code cleanup has been also done, in particular to its output.

          •  26 Feb 2013 14:20

            Release Notes: This release marks a steady path towards 1.0 and is considered usable and stable. The script now offers an elegant way to encrypt drives and file containers. This version brings many improvements over the past versions, including more sophisticated code and better output for the user.
