* 2.14 How do I Benchmark the Ciphers, Hashes and Modes?
Since version 1.60 cryptsetup supports the "benchmark" command.
Simply run as root:
cryptsetup benchmark
It will output first iterations/second for the key-derivation
function PBKDF2 parameterized with different hash-functions, and
then the raw encryption speed of ciphers with different modes and
key-sizes. You can get more than the default benchmarks, see the
man-page for the relevant parameters. Note that XTS mode takes two
keys, hence the listed key sizes are double that for other modes
and half of it is the cipher key, the other half is the XTS key.
