NAME

       cryptdisks_start - wrapper around cryptsetup that parses /etc/crypttab.

SYNOPSIS

       cryptdisks_start <name>

DESCRIPTION

       cryptdisks_start is a wrapper around cryptsetup that parses
       /etc/crypttab just like the initscript /etc/init.d/cryptdisks does and
       starts the dm-crypt mapping that corresponds to <name>.

       Note that this wrapper passes --key-file=- to cryptsetup, so the
       passphase in any referenced key file must not be followed by a newline
       character.

SEE ALSO

       cryptdisks_stop(8), cryptsetup(8), crypttab(5)
