This article explains how to use eCryptfs in its most basic form. It walks you through the steps of building a private and protected encrypted directory in your home directory to store confidential files and personal information.
In terms of implementation, eCryptfs differs from dm-crypt in that dm-crypt is a block device encryption layer, while eCryptfs is a stacked cryptographic file system. The Data-at-rest encryption#Comparison table can be used to compare the two. The encryption is stacked on top of an existing filesystem, so eCryptfs can be installed on any single existing directory and does not require a separate partition (or size pre-allocation).
eCryptfs does not require any special on-disk storage allocation effort, such as a separate partition or pre-allocated space, as stated in the description. Instead, you can encrypt any single directory by mounting eCryptfs on top of it. For example, a user’s entire home directory or single dedicated directories within it fall under this category. Encrypted data can be easily transferred, saved for backup, and retrieved because all cryptographic metadata is stored in the headers of files. There are other benefits, but there are also disadvantages. For example, eCryptfs is not ideal for encrypting entire partitions, which means it cannot secure swap space (though it can be combined with Dm-crypt/Swap encryption). If you’re just getting started with disk encryption, Data-at-Rest encryption#Preparation covers swap encryption and other things to think about.

Simple ssh setup for ubuntu and linux mint

I’d like to enter my Home folder, which has its own partition. But, since it’s encrypted (I have the key), it “mounts,” allowing me to access the folder, but instead of the contents, it has a file named “Access-Your-Private-Data.desktop.” This “Access-Your-Private-Data.desktop” file probably only runs “/usr/bin/ecryptfs-mount-private” on the command line, but there’s also a README file that says: Does the system actually let you log in? Or do you use a recovery mode menu entry you allowed in /etc/default/grub to boot into a root terminal? Perhaps you’re using ‘chroot’ from a live system?
I’m unable to boot. I’m taken to a terminal screen after “booting.” It returns to the grub’s initial screen after I enter the username and password (the one showing which distro to boot in). The recovery mode was turned off. But, as long as I get my data back, that’s fine with me.

Encrypted files in windows with gpg and kleopatra

I just finished installing ArchLabs, but after mounting one of the partitions (my former /home), I ran into a problem. Access-Your-Private-Data.desktop and README.txt were discovered inside. ERROR: Encrypted private directory is not setup properly when using ecryptfs-mount-private. That is why I have created this topic. Anyone know how I can get my data back?
RT @nate: That’s something I’m thinking about as well. Are you a pamdrive user? I realize I’m aiming in the dark, but I’m trying to figure this out. It is not possible for a device to encrypt on its own. As far as I’m aware, these are the only two possibilities. But first, I’m going to do some testing.

How to setup shares, groups & user permissions in

I had some login issues after rebooting my laptop. I was finally able to log into my account. But then I noticed that something had changed, and in my /home folder, I discovered a file named Access-Your-Private-Data.desktop and a readme.txt. So I followed the instructions and received this mistake. The encrypted private directory is not properly configured. I looked for a long time and couldn’t find anything that worked. The information on my laptop is extremely valuable. Is there any chance of getting it back? 2 responses 82 percent sharesavehidereport Voted up This discussion has been closed.
