Management of encrypted file systems

cryptmount is a utility for creating encrypted filesystems & swap partitions and which allows an ordinary user to mount/unmount filing systems without requiring superuser privileges.

It offers the following features:

   * easy and safe on-demand access to filesystems without su/sudo;
   * access passwords can be changed easily without involving the sys-admin;
   * filesystems can reside on raw disk partitions or ordinary files;
   * multiple filesystems can be stored in a single disk partition;
   * includes support for encrypted swap partitions;
   * temporary filesystems can be setup via command-line,
     for use in shell-scripts;
   * encrypted filesystems can be initialized at boot-up or on demand;
   * transparent configuration of dm-crypt & loopback devices during mounting;
   * encrypted access keys can be stored on removable media
     (e.g. USB flash disks);
