luksformat


SYNOPSIS
       luksformat [-t fstype] device [ mkfs options ]

DESCRIPTION
       luksformat is a wrapper around cryptsetup and mkfs which provides an
       easy interface for creating an encrypted device that follows the LUKS
       standard and for putting a file system onto the encrypted device.

       The default file system is vfat since that is most commonly used on
       removable devices. However, you can specify any available file system
       with the -t option.

SEE ALSO
       cryptsetup(8), mkfs(8)
