    Hi, I have some problem encrypting the external disk


    I have T6570 which does not have harware AES


    modprobe dm-crypt
    modprobe sha256


    modprobe aes, this command gave me error says
    ERROR: could not insert 'aesni_intel ': No such device
    ERROR: could not insert 'padlock_aes': No such device


    Then I put
    alias aes aes_generic
    into /etc/modprobe.d/aliases
    rerun modprobe aes still gave me the same problem.
    So what can I do with this?


    cryptsetup --verify-passphrase luksFormat /dev/sdb1 -c aes -s 256 -h sha256 works,
    but cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb1 securebackup will error with invalid format
