For EncFS for Linux 1.7.4Publisher's description


EncFS for Linux is a Security software developed by Valient Gough. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for EncFS for Linux:

BS Editor: ncFS provides an encrypted FileSystem in user-space. It runs without any special permissions and uses the FUSE Library and Linux Kernel module to provide the filesystem interface.

As with most encrypted filesystems, Encfs is meant to provide security against off-line attacks; ie your NoteBook or backups fall into the wrong hands, etc. The way Encfs works is different from the “loopback” encrypted filesystem support built into the Linux kernel because it works on files at a time, not an entire block device. This is a big advantage in some ways, but does not come without a cost.

Advantages of pass-thru system vs an encrypted block device

- Size: an empty EncFS filesystem consists of a couple dozen bytes and can grow to any size without needing to be reformatted. With a loopback encrypted filesystem, you allocate a filesystem ahead of time with the size you want. Depending on the filesystem, there may be ways of resizing it later, but that requires user intervention.

- Automated Backups: An EncFS filesystem can be backed-up on a file-by-file basis. A backup program can Detect which files have changed, even though it won’t be able to decipher the files. This way backups can be made without needing to mount the encrypted filesystem.

- Layering / Separation of Trust: EncFS can be layered on top of other filesystems in order to add encryption to unencrypted filesystems. This also allows you to store data on filesystems you trust for storage but not for security.
