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 /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.
