EncFS provides an encrypted filesystem in user-space. It runs without
any special permissions and uses the FUSE library and Linux kernel
module to provide the filesystem interface.
As with most encrypted filesystems, Encfs is meant to provide security
against off-line attacks; ie your notebook or backups fall into the
wrong hands, etc. The way Encfs works is different from the "loopback"
encrypted filesystem support built into the Linux kernel because it
works on files at a time, not an entire block device. This is a big
advantage in some ways, but does not come without a cost.
