Cryptsetup 2.0.3 Release Notes
Stable bug-fix release with new features.
Cryptsetup 2.x version introduces a new on-disk LUKS2 format.
The legacy LUKS (referenced as LUKS1) will be fully supported
forever as well as a traditional and fully backward compatible format.
Please note that authenticated disk encryption, non-cryptographic
data integrity protection (dm-integrity), use of Argon2 Password-Based
Key Derivation Function and the LUKS2 on-disk format itself are new
features and can contain some bugs.
To provide all security features of authenticated encryption, we need
a better nonce-reuse resistant algorithm in the kernel (see note below).
For now, please use authenticated encryption as an experimental feature.
Please do not use LUKS2 without properly configured backup or in
production systems that need to be compatible with older systems.
