NAME

       systemd-cryptsetup-generator - Unit generator for /etc/crypttab

SYNOPSIS

       /lib/systemd/system-generators/systemd-cryptsetup-generator

DESCRIPTION

       systemd-cryptsetup-generator is a generator that translates /etc/crypttab into native
       systemd units early at boot and when configuration of the system manager is reloaded. This
       will create systemd-cryptsetup@.service(8) units as necessary.

       systemd-cryptsetup-generator implements systemd.generator(7).

KERNEL COMMAND LINE

       systemd-cryptsetup-generator understands the following kernel command line parameters:

       luks=, rd.luks=
           Takes a boolean argument. Defaults to "yes". If "no", disables the generator entirely.
           rd.luks= is honored only by initial RAM disk (initrd) while luks= is honored by both
           the main system and the initrd.

       luks.crypttab=, rd.luks.crypttab=
           Takes a boolean argument. Defaults to "yes". If "no", causes the generator to ignore
           any devices configured in /etc/crypttab (luks.uuid= will still work however).
           rd.luks.crypttab= is honored only by initial RAM disk (initrd) while luks.crypttab= is
           honored by both the main system and the initrd.

       luks.uuid=, rd.luks.uuid=
           Takes a LUKS superblock UUID as argument. This will activate the specified device as
           part of the boot process as if it was listed in /etc/crypttab. This option may be
           specified more than once in order to set up multiple devices.  rd.luks.uuid= is
           honored only by initial RAM disk (initrd) while luks.uuid= is honored by both the main
           system and the initrd.

           If /etc/crypttab contains entries with the same UUID, then the name, keyfile and
           options specified there will be used. Otherwise, the device will have the name
           "luks-UUID".

           If /etc/crypttab exists, only those UUIDs specified on the kernel command line will be
           activated in the initrd or the real root.

       luks.name=, rd.luks.name=
           Takes a LUKS super block UUID followed by an "=" and a name. This implies
           rd.luks.uuid= or luks.uuid= and will additionally make the LUKS device given by the
           UUID appear under the provided name.

           rd.luks.name= is honored only by initial RAM disk (initrd) while luks.name= is honored
           by both the main system and the initrd.

       luks.options=, rd.luks.options=
           Takes a LUKS super block UUID followed by an "=" and a string of options separated by
           commas as argument. This will override the options for the given UUID.

           If only a list of options, without an UUID, is specified, they apply to any UUIDs not
           specified elsewhere, and without an entry in /etc/crypttab.

           rd.luks.options= is honored only by initial RAM disk (initrd) while luks.options= is
           honored by both the main system and the initrd.

       luks.key=, rd.luks.key=
           Takes a password file name as argument or a LUKS super block UUID followed by a "="
           and a password file name.

           For those entries specified with rd.luks.uuid= or luks.uuid=, the password file will
           be set to the one specified by rd.luks.key= or luks.key= of the corresponding UUID, or
           the password file that was specified without a UUID.

           rd.luks.key= is honored only by initial RAM disk (initrd) while luks.key= is honored
           by both the main system and the initrd.
