#qemu-img create -e -f qcow2 image.qcow2 10G
If you pass the option -e or -o encryption when you create an image, the resulting image will be encrypted, with an empty (blank) password – there is no option to set a password in a single step at the time of creation.
To set a password, again use qemu-img , but this time with the convert option
#qemu-img convert -e -O qcow2 image.qcow2 encrypted.qcow2
You will be asked to give a password twice. At the first prompt hit enter (as the password is blank), at the second prompt you will set the password for your resulting encrypted disk.
