libntfs - library for accessing and managing NTFS volumes
libntfs is GPL licensed library for accessing and managing NTFS
volumes. It is used by ntfsprogs and some other projects.
ACCESSING ENCRYPTED FILES
Programs that uses libntfs can transparently access encrypted files on
NTFS volumes if libntfs was compiled with --enable-crypto option (it
depends on libgcrypt, GNU TLS and libconfig) and user wrote
configuration file. Configuration file should be placed in
/etc/libntfs/config or $(HOME)/.libntfs/config and contain list of .PFX
key files (see ntfsprogs-<version>/libntfs/config in ntfsprogs source
tarball for sample configuration file). Key files can be
created/exported using cipher tool under windows.
libntfs was written by Anton Altaparmakov, Richard Russon, Szabolcs
Szakacsits, Yuval Fledel and Yura Pakhuchiy.
