LUKS is the standard for Linux hard disk encryption. By providing a standard on-disk-format, it does not only facilitate compatibility among distributions, but also provides secure management of multiple user passwords. In contrast to existing solution, LUKS stores all setup necessary setup information in the partition header, enabling the user to transport or migrate his data seamlessly.
LUKS was designed according to TKS1, a template design developed in TKS1 for secure key setup. LUKS closely reassembles the structure recommended in the TKS1 paper, but also adds meta data for cipher setup management and LUKS also supports for multiple keys/passphrases.

Im using LUKS on my Kali Linux distro along with NUKE option. This is fantastic. Put in the failsafe passcode and everything becomes obsolete. Insert the backup LUKS files and you recover it back. Must have for encryption.
