       mount.ecryptfs - eCryptfs mount helper.


       mount -t ecryptfs [lower directory] [ecryptfs mount point]


       mount.ecryptfs  is  eCryptfs mount helper. The mount utility will defer
       to the mount helper to perform various configuration tasks; use the  -i
       option  to bypass the mount helper if you would rather manually specify
       your mount options. To mount  eCryptfs,  specify  the  lower  directory
       (i.e., /root/crypt) for the encrypted files and the eCryptfs mountpoint
       (i.e., /mnt/crypt) for the decrypted view of the files:

       mount -t ecryptfs /root/crypt /mnt/crypt
