Insight

Insight

eCryptfs is a stacked, cryptographic file system. It is transparent to the underlying file system and provides per-file granularity. eCryptfs is released as a Technology Preview for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4. These updated ecryptfs-utils packages have been upgraded to upstream version 75, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. In addition, these packages provide a graphical program to help configure and use eCryptfs. To start this program, run the command: ecryptfs-mount-helper-gui Important: the syntax of certain eCryptfs mount options has changed. Users who were previously using the initial Technology Preview release of ecryptfs-utils are advised to refer to the ecryptfs(7) man page, and to update any affected mount scripts and /etc/fstab entries for eCryptfs file systems. A disclosure flaw was found in the way the 'ecryptfs-setup-private' script passed passphrases to the 'ecryptfs-wrap-passphrase' and 'ecryptfs-add-passphrase' commands as command line arguments. A local user could obtain the passphrases of other users who were running the script from the process listing. (CVE-2008-5188) These updated packages provide various enhancements, including a mount helper and supporting libraries to perform key management and mounting functions. Notable enhancements include: * a new package, ecryptfs-utils-gui, has been added to this update. This package depends on the pygtk2 and pygtk2-libglade packages and provides the eCryptfs Mount Helper GUI program. To install the GUI, first install ecryptfs-utils and then issue the following command: yum install ecryptfs-utils-gui (BZ#500997) * the 'ecryptfs-rewrite-file' utility is now more intelligent when dealing with non-existent files and with filtering special files such as the '.' directory. In addition, the progress output from 'ecryptfs-rewrite-file' has been improved and is now more explicit about the success status of each target. (BZ#500813) * descriptions of the 'verbose' flag and the 'verbosity=[x]' option, where [x] is either 0 or 1, were missing from a number of eCryptfs manual pages, and have been added. Refer to the eCryptfs man pages for important information regarding using the verbose and/or verbosity options. (BZ#470444) These updated packages also fix the following bugs: * mounting a directory using the eCryptfs mount helper with an RSA key that was too small did not allow the eCryptfs mou ...
