Cryptographic file system support in the 2.6 kernel

What secure or cryptographic file systems exist for Linux?

Requires Free Membership to View

There are several cryptographic file systems that are available for Linux -- including Loopback, CFS, TCFS and CryptFS. In addition, the 2.6 kernel offers considerable support for cryptographic file systems.

Some of the examples of these file systems can be learnt about at the Transparent Cryptographic File System page, a tutorial on encrypting your disks with Linux and the cryptographic filesystem NCryptfs.
