ecryptfsd - user-space eCryptfs daemon.
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.
