Simply: I use efs to encrypt my files in windows, i want the same in linux without luks because luks encyrpts the partition and asks for password on system login, i want the encyrption with certificate without prompt password.

You can still use luks to encrypt you partition and not need a password do decrypt it. All you have to do is generate a secondary key without password to the encrypted partition, then add it to /etc/crypttab and the decrypted device in your /etc/fstab and it will decrypt it on boot without it asking for a password.
