    script/command to change passphrase


    Hi all,
    I am preseeding to configure ubuntu on individual PCs.in preseeding I also use partman-crypto to protect disk with encrypting passphrase.everything is working fine.
    I want to know is there any command or script through which we can change the passphrase after installation?
    I mean i can re assign different passphrase to pc after installation?

    I have googled,it can be done using gnome disk utility but it requires root privileges. I want to create a script which can be run by logged in user with his/her own password.

    thanks

    since this is ubuntu, and ubuntu lets users run anything via sudo...can't you just have a user login script call the decryption utility via sudo?
