 For LUKS operations that add key material, this options allows to you specify which key slot is selected for the new key. This option can be used for luksFormat and luksAddKey.

-set key size in bits. Has to be a multiple of 8 bits. The key size is limited by the used cipher. See output of /proc/crypto for more information. Can be used for \fIcreate\fR or \fIluksFormat\fR, all other LUKS actions will ignore this flag, as the key-size is specified by the partition header. Default is 128.

 .SH NOTES ON PASSWORD PROCESSING
-\fIFrom a file descriptor or a terminal\fR: Password processing is new-line sensitive, meaning the reading will stop after encountering \\n. It will process the read material (without newline) with the default hash or the hash given by \-\-hash. After hashing, it will be cropped to the key size given by \-s (default 256 bits).

-\fIFrom stdin\fR: Reading will continue until EOF (so using e.g. /dev/random as stdin will not work), with the trailing newline stripped. After that the read data will be hashed with the default hash or the hash given by \-\-hash and the result will be cropped to the keysize given by \-s (default 256 bits). If "plain" is used as an argument to the hash option, the input data will not be hashed. Instead it will be zero padded (if shorter than the keysize) or truncated (if longer than the keysize) and used directly as the key.

 Instead, it will be zero padded (if shorter than the keysize) or truncated (if longer than the keysize) and used directly as the key. No warning will be given if the amount of data read from stdin is less than the keysize.
