ecryptfs-utils 111 eCryptfs cryptographic file system utilities

eCryptfs is a POSIX-compliant stacked cryptographic file system for Linux. Each file's cryptographic meta-data is stored inside the file itself, along with the encrypted contents. This allows individual encrypted files to be copied between hosts and still be decrypted with the proper key. eCryptfs is a native Linux file system, and has been part of the Linux kernel since version 2.6.19. This package contains the userland utilities to manage it.
