K-EncFS is a frontend to the EncFS encrypting utility.
If you have a notebook, or personal data on your computer, you really need this application.
Encfs is meant to provide security against off-line attacks; ie your notebook is stolen, your backups are stolen.
· python (>=2.3.5)
· python-qt3 (pyQt, >=3.15)
· python-KDE (pyKDE, tested version: 3.11.3)
· EncFS (tested versions: 1.2.4, 1.3.1) and its dependencies:
· FUSE (tested version: 2.6.1)
· RLog (a C++ logging library, tested versions: 1.3.6, 1.3.7)
· OpenSSL (versions 0.9.6, 0.9.7 and 0.9.8 have been tested.)
NOTE for Debian users: These utilities are included in Debian. You need not download and compile anything. Do not remove the line inserting fuse from the file /etc/modules! If you use Ubuntu, it must work from Dapper (it has not been tested).
NOTE for openSuSE 10.2 users: Just install encfs with its dependencies! Do not remove the line inserting fuse from the file /etc/modules! If you enter the wrong password, only a short notification will appear in the "Messages" box. It is because of a bug in your distribution packages.
Please do a comprehensive test before using this encryption utility!
What's New in This Release:
· K-EncFS starts automatically, if you left it on the systemtray.
· Mount encrypted file system during KDE startup in order to restore your works in the encrypted file system. (Requires editing the startkde script.)
