hi malikawan,

perhaps a luks-encrypted container-file could provide you some features that you are looking for.
the encrypted "file system" is mounted over a directory and you can use a nice link in your home-dir..
for that approach you can open the container only when it is needed or you open it at every reboot.
this could be a secure way to encrypt data in a safe way.

keep on hacking :-)

hi malikawan,

i recommend you a luks-encrypted container-file.
thats very handy... you can copy and move this file wherever you want.
... and you can decrypt and open the file just for needed purposes, in other cases it stays encrpted.
just search for "luks encrypted file" in the web and you will find many howtos.

keep on hacking :-)
