is there a way to mount an encrypted USB drive?

    The thinkpad BIOS supports hardware encryption, but it only prompts
    for passwords on SATA-attached drives. It does not find USB-attached
    HDDs that have hardware encryption, and does not prompt for a
    password. How can these drives be mounted?

    There is a TPM project called "trousers", but the documentation is
    vague. Can trousers be used to mount a USB-attached
    hardware-encrypted device?
