Description eblix08 2009-02-13 10:38:19 EST
I would like to see support for easy access to individually encrypted directories.  The purpose of this is even though a network administrator is in charge of a folder sometime they should not be privileged to the contents under the folder.  How I envision this working is when a privileged user trys to access a encrypted directory they are prompted for a passphrase before they can continue.

LUKS is a block device encryption tool; it does not work at the directory level.
