Working with encrypted devices in both GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows requires installing additional tools either on one of the systems or on both. This will change with adding support for BitLocker, full disk encryption technology for Microsoft Windows, to cryptsetup which is currently being worked on. It is possible to support working with BitLocker devices on Linux using existing technologies like Device Mapper and with only relatively small changes to existing tools present these devices to users in the same way we present native LUKS/dm-crypt devices which will make using encrypted devices like flash drives much easier and much more user friendly in environments with both GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows.
