This will create a mapping of the de-crypted partition at /dev/mapper/foo. Then you can mount /dev/mapper/foo to your desired mountpoint (such as /disk2). These are two ...

Run the command cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb1 EncHDD You will have to introduce your passphrase and a new device will be created under /dev/mapper called EncHDD. After that mount /dev/mapper/EncHDD /mnt and you will be ready to go. Your ...
