systemd-cryptsetup

SYNOPSIS
       systemd-cryptsetup@.service

       /lib/systemd/systemd-cryptsetup

DESCRIPTION
       systemd-cryptsetup@.service is a service responsible for setting up
       encrypted block devices. It is instantiated for each device that
       requires decryption for access.

       systemd-cryptsetup@.service will ask for hard disk passwords via the
       password agent logic[1], in order to query the user for the password
       using the right mechanism at boot and during runtime.

       At early boot and when the system manager configuration is reloaded
       this /etc/crypttab is translated into systemd-cryptsetup@.service units
       by systemd-cryptsetup-generator(8).
