Default dm-crypt/LUKS the state of the art for block device encryption?

it's been a while since i've played with filesystem encryption so,
on centos 5.4 (and other linux distros), is dm-crypt/LUKS considered
to be the state of the art WRT encryption? i remember other solutions
like loop-aes and others, but what's considered the gold standard
these days?

Yes, dm-crypt/LUKS/ configured in /etc/crypttab is the "blessed" way afaik.
