Summary0000468: LUKSUS - An easy data encrypter (that uses LUKS or Truecrypt)

I would like to suggest you add LUKSUS.

It is a console script/tool that makes it quick and easy to encrypt a storage media like a hardrive or a memory stick using DM-LUKS or Truecrypt.
It takes all the necessary steps for doing this, like shredding the media
before format, filesystem creation, logging, and so on. It puts it into an
all-in-one package. It also goes beyond LUKS, and now supports multiple encryption engines.

LUKSUS is written in Bash and is actively developed.
Size wise it is tiny.

Latest version attached, although obviously available from Github as well.

Available on github
Released under GPLv2 - free libre software
