Default Luks password on USB stick on fully encrypted device

Hello guys,

I would like to have fully encrypted system with LUKS and I would like to store keyfile on non-bootable USB stick.
When I power on my system, I just put USB stick into the box and it will boot reading the key from the USB stick so I do not have to type password manually.


I found this is suppored on Archlinux as cryptkey kernel argument:
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/System_Encryption_with_LUKS_for_dm-crypt#Storing_the_key_externally_.28USB_stick.29


Is this possible on Fedora?
Is there any doc where can I found the list of all supported kernel arguments for Fedora?

Thank you very much,

Jaiv

Michael,
Thank you for pointing me to that bug. However it does not look good to me -*Will be the same functionality included in dracut then?
Does this ticket need to be re-opened for dracut?
