It seems that there is no free download. Sorry, cannot even try it. Ask them.

It works with upstream build, in fact, maximal interactive password length
can be seen in cryptsetup --help:
Default compiled-in key and passphrase parameters:
        Maximum keyfile size: 8192kB, Maximum interactive passphrase length 512 (characters)
Default PBKDF2 iteration time for LUKS: 1000 (ms)
