LUKSFORMAT(8)             (2021-08-19)              LUKSFORMAT(8)

     NAME
          luksformat - Create and format an encrypted LUKS device

     SYNOPSIS
          luksformat [-t fstype] device [ mkfs options ]

     DESCRIPTION
          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.
