The following caveats apply to this release of eCryptfs:
Note that the eCryptfs file system will only work properly if the encrypted file system is mounted once over the underlying directory of the same name. For example:
mount -t ecryptfs /mnt/secret /mnt/secret
The secured portion of the file system should not be exposed, i.e. it should not be mounted to other mount points, bind mounts, and the like.
eCryptfs mounts on networked file systems (e.g. NFS, Samba) will not work properly.
This version of the eCryptfs kernel driver requires updated userspace, which is provided by ecryptfs-utils-56-4.el5 or newer.
