LUKSFORMAT(8) Administrative commands LUKSFORMAT(8)
luksformat - Create and format an encrypted LUKS device
luksformat [-t fstype] device [ mkfs options ]
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.
