Download Now Free registration required

Executive Summary

If the user needs to share data in a Linux environment, some basic encryption solutions and practices will allow the user to do so in a very secure manner. Many tools enable data encryption in Linux, and each has its pros and cons. Yet many developers try to build their own cryptographic technology, which often gets them in trouble. A better approach is to employ tools that rely on proven cryptography techniques and algorithms. A great example of this approach is eCryptfs, a complete cryptographic file system for Linux that essentially is a robust implementation of mature cryptographic technology.
