This is usually handled by a keyring application such as gnome-keyring.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GNOME_Keyring has a lot of information about that one.

Betreff: [dm-crypt] Where is the entered password stored?


When I attach a hard disk with LUKS encrypted partition to a Linux 
machine, a window will pop up and a password or passphrase is required 
to unlock the encrypted partition. In addition to forget passphrase 
immediately, I can choose to 1) remember passphrase until I logout or 
2) remember forever. I am curious about where the entered passphrase 
is kept in the two cases?
