  4. cryptsetup --verbose -y luksFormat /dev/xvdn /keys/xvdn.key
  5. cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/xvdm cryptm --key-file /etc/xvdm.key
  6. cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/xvdn cryptn --key-file /etc/xvdn.key
  7. pvcreate /dev/mapper/cryptm /dev/mapper/cryptn
  8. Add entries to /etc/crypttab for reboots and test somehow
