Extension request for 3.0: eCryptFS
« on: June 13, 2010, 09:51:28 PM »
I've been looking into encrypting $HOME, and have been happy with eCryptFS (https://launchpad.net/ecryptfs). However, for it to work, it needs both a kernel module as well as the userspace utils.

As far as I can tell, the only missing dependency in the kernel is "Enable access key retention support" (CONFIG_KEYS) (could be built as a module), and CONFIG_ECRYPT_FS itself can also be built as a module.

The userspace utils depend on keyutils (http://people.redhat.com/~dhowells/keyutils/) and libgcrypt.

Many thanks!
