You can interface with cryptsetup in two different ways.

1. Though its binary interface.From the terminal,run "cryptsetup --help"
and "man cryptsetup" to get more info on this interface.

2. Through the library API interface,you can get more info on this
interface from this link:
http://wiki.cryptsetup.googlecode.com/git/API/index.html

Which one of the two will be more appropriate depends on your use case but
both can be used from your GUI application.

These two interface should be sufficient for you and if you are to look at
cryptsetup code,it should be only go get more insight on how to use the
library API and not to extend it as that is most likely not want you want
to do.
