* Package name    : cryptomount
  Version         : 1.0.1
  Upstream Author : rwpenney«AT»users«DOT»sourceforge«DOT»net
* URL             : http://cryptmount.sourceforge.net/
* License         : GPLv2 or later
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : a utility for accessing encrypted filesystems

cryptomount enables the user to simply create and mount an encrypted
device based on dm-crypt. It can handle either a raw device or a loop
mounted file as the base for dm-crypt.

It offers the following advantage:

    * access to improved functionality in the kernel
    * transparent support for filesystems stored on either raw disk
      partitions or loopback files
    * separate encryption of filesystem access keys, allowing access
      passwords to be changed without re-encrypting the entire
    * storing multiple encrypted filesystems within a single disk
      partition, using a designated subset of blocks for each
    * rarely used filesystems do not need to be mounted at system
    * un-mounting of each filesystem is locked so that this can only be
      performed by the user that mounted it, or the superuser
    * encrypted filesystems compatible with cryptsetup
    * encrypted access-keys are compatible with openssl
