ecryptfsd(8) eCryptfs ecryptfsd(8)NAMEecryptfsd - user-space eCryptfs daemon.
DESCRIPTIONecryptfsd is a userspace daemon that runs as the user performing file
operations under the eCryptfs mount point. It services public key
requests from the eCryptfs kernel module; these requests are sent via
/dev/ecryptfs on file open events. ecryptfsd only needs to be run when
a mount is done with a public key module.
The daemon can be started simply by running ecryptfsd. ecryptfsd will
register itself with the kernel as the daemon that should service all
eCryptfs filesystem requests done under the context of the user who
runs the daemon.
