So LUKS2 is a new format with a ton of new features that strengthen security and offer new functionalities as well!

While certain parts of it are still experimental (the authenticated encryption functionality for one) the major working bits are intact.

I’m excited to take advantage of the new stuff but will need to carefully backport it into existing FDE systems since these are very much important boxes I need to work 100%. However any NEW machines will definitely be using these new features!

Fun times ;]
