you may want to consider loop-aes instead. [0]  i'll try to avoid a
flame war here, but dm-crypt/luks has some deficiencies [1] which may
or may not be of concern.  if you do use dm-crypt/luks, make sure you
have a recent version. (pref. 2.6.20+).

truecrypt is free and open, and pretty decent, particularly if you
want win32 support.

best regards,

(multi-v3) are also larger.  that said, the key schedule and key
scrubbing in loop-aes are preferable to the others IMHO.

1. cryptoloop, dm-crypt, bestcrypt, truecrypt, and loop-aes  - Why
cryptoloop should not be used.
