I am one of the authors and the current maintainer of eCryptfs, a cryptographic filesystem for Linux. It's been in the Linux kernel since about 2006. It's the cryptographic filesystem used by default on Ubuntu if you choose to "Encrypt your Home Directory", as well as by ChromeOS.
I'd like to move the eCryptfs community's interactive, frequently-asked-questions and answers from Launchpad to crypto.stackexchange.com (or to another site, if there's a more appropriate one).
I certainly don't intend for this to be a support forum but rather a repository for quality Q&A content.
Note that I'm doing something similar for another open source project I maintain (byobu) migrating those questions and answers to superuser.com, and I agree to abide by those same guidelines agreed upon.
Here are the guidelines I propose directing eCryptfs users with:
On-Topic on Stack Exchange sites: How and Why?
- Questions that are Ubuntu-specific eCryptfs (e.g., Ubuntu Encrypted Home or Private directories)?
- Questions that are distribution-agnostic, or generally applicable to Linux/Unix eCryptfs, from a user perspective?
- Unix and Linux Stack Exchange!
- Questions about eCryptfs use cases, threat assessments, appropriate and inappropriate uses?
- IT Security Stack Exchange!
- Questions about the math or cryptography within eCryptfs?
- Cryptography Stack Exchange!
Off-Topic on Stack Exchange:
- Errors, bugs, ideas, feature requests, potential vulnerabilities? File a bug!
- Launchpad Bugs!
- Looking for source code?
- We suck and you hate us?
- We're awesome and you love us?
- Wanna chat?
