Summary: An Enterprise-class Cryptographic Filesystem for Linux

Description:
eCryptfs is a POSIX-compliant enterprise-class stacked cryptographic
filesystem for Linux. It is derived from Erez Zadok's Cryptfs, implemented
through the FiST framework for generating stacked filesystems. eCryptfs
extends Cryptfs to provide advanced key management and policy features.
eCryptfs stores cryptographic metadata in the header of each file written,
so that encrypted files can be copied between hosts; the file will be
decryptable with the proper key, and there is no need to keep track of any
additional information aside from what is already in the encrypted file
itself. Think of eCryptfs as a sort of ``gnupgfs.''

eCryptfs is a native Linux filesystem (other popular cryptographic
filesystems for Linux require FUSE or operate via RPC calls). The kernel
module component of eCryptfs is upstream in the Linux kernel.
