See the last paragraph of
"Finished. During boot the system will ask two times for a LUKS
passphrase, first for the root devcie and second for the swap device.
During resuming from suspend to disk the system will also ask for the
two LUKS passphrases."

I haven't tried this particular configuration myself, but from how the
setup is done in that howto (particularly setting up the swap
partition), it appears to be plausible.
