General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_CRYPTO_ADIANTUM:

Help text

Adiantum is a tweakable, length-preserving encryption mode designed for fast and secure disk encryption, especially on CPUs without dedicated crypto instructions. It encrypts each sector using the XChaCha12 stream cipher, two passes of an ε-almost-∆-universal hash function, and an invocation of the AES-256 block cipher on a single 16-byte block. On CPUs without AES instructions, Adiantum is much faster than AES-XTS.

Adiantum's security is provably reducible to that of its underlying stream and block ciphers, subject to a security bound. Unlike XTS, Adiantum is a true wide-block encryption mode, so it actually provides an even stronger notion of security than XTS, subject to the security bound.

If unsure, say N.
