Try to find a password of a LUKS encrypted volume

The program is used to try discovery a password for encrypted LUKS volume used to security reasons. It works trying decrypt at least one of the key slots by trying all the possible passwords. It is used in forensics and is especially useful if you know something about the password (i.e. you forgot a part of your password but still remember most of it). . Because of cryptography complexity, crack the password of a LUKS volume without knowing anything about it would take way too much time (unless the password is really short and/or weak).
