Details

Description:
In new installation 2022.05.01 is not possible perform wiki "dm-crypt/Encrypting an entire system"

commands (from wiki)

# cryptsetup -y -v luksFormat /dev/sda2
# cryptsetup open /dev/sda2 root

don't open encrypted volume. (with right passwords)

Investigation with --debug switch in both commands reveals, that the problem is in pbkdf configuration.
In luks2 type "luksFormat" works with argon2id pbkdf while open works with pbkdf2 pbkdf and verification failed.
In luks1 type both (format and open) works with pbkdf2 and volume is opened.

Workaround for luks2 type is explicitly specified

# cryptsetup -y -v --pbkdf pbkdf2 luksFormat /dev/sda2

but it isn't quite right.




Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:

# cryptsetup -y -v luksFormat /dev/sda2
# cryptsetup open /dev/sda2 root
This task depends upon

I've quickly checked to see if i can reproduce in a VM.
Booted (archlinux-2022.05.01-x86_64.iso) in a VM (QEMU + virt-manager)
Steps i did:
cfdisk /dev/vda
# Created a 500MB /dev/vda1 partition & the rest of the 20GB virtual drive as /dev/vda2
cryptsetup -y -v luksFormat /dev/vda2
# I get output: Key slot 0 Created, Command successful.
cryptsetup open /dev/vda2 root
# Enter passphrase and no errors are displayed.
