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. K-EncFS is a frontend to the EncFS encrypting utility.

K-EncFS has the following dependencies:

* 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.)

Visit the following home pages to download these dependencies:
http://arg0.net/encfs or http://encfs.sourceforge.net/

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.

Use the INSTALL and UNINSTALL scripts if the enclosed packages are not match to your system!
If kde-config fails to work, edit the line 23 of the INSTALL and the line 15 of the UNINSTALL file. The variable KDEINSTPREFIX is the installation directory of KDE, e.g. KDEINSTPREFIX="/opt/kde3" or KDEINSTPREFIX="/opt/kde3.5".

If you want to migrate from kencfs to kencfs2, copy the content of the folder pops-up with kencfs to the folder pops-up with kencfs2. Do not move the encrypted folder! The path is a parameter of the encryption method.

Please do a comprehensive test before using this encryption utility!

From the version 2.1, K-EncFS can mount the encrypted file system during KDE startup, so the previous tastks can be restored by KDE. (For more info read the file /usr/local/lib/kencfs2/startkde/readme.startkde)
A known problem if you patch the startkde script:
On SuSE 10.3, the startups screen waits about 1 min. if you use the default splash screen. You can press the left mouse button, or you can choose another splash screen.

The picture file_locked.png is from the iconset SnowIsh-1.0 created by Alexandre Moore (aka Saki), compiled for KDE by Arno Rehn. (SnowIsh for KDE was merged with NuoveXT (from Saki) to fit better with KDE.)


Changelog for version 2.1 (kencfs2)

- 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.)

Changelog for version 2.0 (kencfs2)

- Encoding options.
- New folder for encrypted files.
- Improved operation.
- Generic install and uninstall scripts were improved.

NOTE: There are two versions of K-EncFS: kencfs and kencfs2. You can use them simultaneously. Only kencfs2 will be maintained.

Changelog for version 1.1

- Generic install and uninstall scripts were added.
- Tooltips.
- Improved error messages.

Is the link
really missing after the installation?

(It was copied by the install script.
Please copy it manually from the tgz to the target directory!)

 k-encfs for version 1.5.0

Any chance that the k-encfs gui can be updated to work with version 1.4.2 or 1.5.0? Seems this kde-app has lapsed back in the version 1.3 or before days of encfs.

Unfortunately the author of encfs refused to cooperate with me. I think, he assumes that you use only command line. How can you remember the command line parameters for hundred of applications?
I forget it after I have finished my work with the frontend.

Much more serious problem is the backward compatibility...

I have to check the application regularly, and to correct it. I created this application for you, but this does not apply for encfs.

Python-KDE4 is in experimental state.
Every distro have a surprise in store for you. There is a serious risk concerning your data if you use it.

My main problem is the mess (.directory) appears during working with koquerror an dolphin. This prevents mounting the file system.
I hate the thumbs files on my cd-s, and i hate...
(KDE4 is not intended for the daily usage but it is only for the design.)

I must find a stupid solution for this problem.

 EncFS and GUI file managers

 by anthonyt on: Nov 23 2010
Score 50%

I would NEVER EVER open a encrypted filesystem in a graphical window manager. Period.

The problem is that they all like to create 'icon' files which typically get stored in a sub-directory of your home, outside the encrypted file system.

If someone was to steal your laptop, or break into your machine they can get a really good idea of what you have encrypted by just looking at these icons.

Even if you don't have images, movies, or postscript files in your encrypted folder, that generates visible thumbnails, the black hats can still get an idea of what file names you are using from the thumbnails and any possible browsing history it may keep.

Even with command line shells you need to keep in mine shell history, and take appropriate measures to protect yourself. Same goes for editors that could make use of /tmp.

Now don't get me wrong. I use EncFS a lot, and not just for files I want secure, but for a lot of less important files too (the more you have the the harder it is to separate the craff or fake un-decipherable data). But you can't just use it blindly.

Always secure your files, you never know who is lurking about.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
