zuluCrypt (CLI and GUI frontend to cryptsetup).

zuluCrypt is a simple, feature rich and powerful solution for hard
drives encryption.

zuluCrypt is made up of two components:
The back end, CLI interface is called "zuluCrypt-cli".
The front end is Qt GUI application called "zuluCrypt-gui.

* zuluCrypt:

zuluCrypt does hard drives encryption and it can manage plain dm-crypt
volumes,LUKS encrypted volumes, TrueCrypt encrypted volumes and VeraCrypt
encrypted volumes.

zuluCrypt can manage encrypted volumes that are hosted in image files,in
lvm volumes,in mdraid volumes as well as in hard drives and usb sticks.

zuluCrypt can also encrypt stand alone files:
  zuluCrypt menu->zC->encrypt a file.

* zuluMount:

zuluMount is bundled with zuluCrypt and its meant to be used as a general
purpose tool that mount and unmount zuluCrypt supported encrypted volumes
as well as unencrypted volumes and it can be used as a substitute to
udisks,pmount and related tools.

zuluMount-gui can also be used as a frontend to encfs.

zuluMount-gui is ideal for use as a desktop environment/file manager
independent tool for mounting/unmounting encrypted and unencrypted
volumes.

NOTE:

* This package was set to do not use Gnome or KDE to store passwords,
If you want that feature, change the value -DNOGNOME=false or
-DNOKDE=false to "true". About these and other options, please check
/usr/doc/$PRGNAM-$VERSION/BUILD_INSTRUCTIONS.

Optional dependencies are: libpwquality, tc-play (also available as
internal copy in the zuluCrypt source).
