How-to: Debian: Automatically mounted loopback images with dm-crypt, LUKS, pam_mount

How to create encrypted loopback images with dm-crypt and LUKS + automatically mounting them after login with pam_mount

I recommend using debian squeeze for this scenario as lenny includes a very old version of libpam-mount and I had lots of problems when I tried using it.
Using only the libpam-mount package and its dependencies from squeeze maybe (I didn’t try it and I wouldn’t recommend it either) does the job too, but at least has a very bitter after taste if you take a closer look at the dependencies.
