The last option on this command is a name for the opened partition. I'm not sure it would
like having "/" in this name because it implies that the dm would have to create a

# cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdc FRED
You should get prompted for a passphrase at that point.
# cryptsetup status FRED
# mount /dev/mapper/FRED /mnt
# df -h /mnt
