ecryptfsd(8)                       eCryptfs                       ecryptfsd(8)



NAME
       ecryptfsd - user-space eCryptfs daemon.


DESCRIPTION
       ecryptfsd  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 netlink  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.
