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 passphrase in any
       referenced key file must not be followed by a newline character.

SEE ALSO

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