A fuse implementation of an encrypted view on a given directory.

Project description


encviewfuse is a fuse filesystem that provides an encrypted view on a given directory. You can use it in conjunction with usual backup software without the requirement to save the files encrypted or provide additional space.


The file system is available for Python 3 via pypi (encviewfuse.fuse).


encviewfuse_fs <source directory> <mount point> -o secret=<secret>,fileSalt=<fileSalt>,filenameSalt=<filenameSalt>

Option Value Meaning
source directory The directory containing the files to be encrypted
mount point The mount point for the encrypted view
secret The secret used for the encryption
fileSalt The id of the file salt provider (filename | mtime)
filenameSalt The id of the filename salt provider (filename | mtime)

Instead of the secret option, you can also use the secretfile option to specify a file containing the secret.
