libgocryptfs is a re-desing of the original gocryptfs code to work as a library. Volumes are not mounted with FUSE but rather opened in memory and accessed through API calls. What the purpose ?

  • Allow the use of gocryptfs in embedded devices where FUSE is not available (such as Android)
  • Reduce attack surface by restricting volumes access to only one process rather than one user

Warning !

The only goal of this library is to be integrated in DroidFS. It's not actually ready for other usages. libgocryptfs doesn't implement all features provided by gocryptfs like symbolic links creation, thread-safety, reverse volume creation... Use it at your own risk !
