  • Hi,

    Maybe these articles can help you, please refer to the links:

    LUKS is the standard for Linux hard disk encryption. By providing a standard on-disk-format, it does not only facilitate compatibility among distributions, but also provides secure management of multiple user passwords. In contrast to existing solution, LUKS stores all setup necessary setup information in the partition header, enabling the user to transport or migrate his data seamlessly

    In addition, for Linux problem, I’m afraid you need to connect Linux support for further help.

    Hi Tao,

    This is not a Linux problem.   LUKS works perfectly over on Linux.  I use them ALL THE TIME on the Linux side of my business.  

    This is a Windows issue.  I am wanting to read these flash drives on Windows. 

    The is a utility called FreeOTFE that is not maintained that will read them, but it is required to turn off driver signing on 64 bit Windows 7 to use it as the author(s) will not pay the driver signing ransom to Microsoft.

    I am looking for a maintained utility read LUKS on Windows (not Linux, where is works perfectly)

    Thank you for the link, even though it is a "How To" for Linux, which I already know how to do.  I need to know how to read a LUKS encrypted drive in Windows, not Linux.
