I don't think Fedora's boot environment supports dongles for use with luks if
that is what you want to do.
I think luks supports some different ways to get the key from a key slot.
I remember seeing an option for supplying a key file instead of a password.
I haven't played with that though and haven't looked at the luks documentation
for a while. It may be that there are some other options.
The home page for luks has some low level details on the data structures
for the key slots and the like.
You might also find some useful information in the man page for cryptsetup.
