       ecryptfsd - user-space eCryptfs daemon.


       ecryptfsd  is  a userspace daemon that runs as the user performing file
       operations under the eCryptfs  mount  point.  It  services  public  key
       requests  from  the eCryptfs kernel module; these requests are sent via
       netlink on file open events. ecryptfsd only needs  to  be  run  when  a
       mount is done with a public key module.

       The  daemon  can be started simply by running ecryptfsd. ecryptfsd will
       register itself with the kernel as the daemon that should  service  all
       eCryptfs  filesystem  requests  done  under the context of the user who
       runs the daemon.
