Maybe the users should be warned when they set up their ~/Private directory, the file names are not encrypted.
2008-09-08 01:23:42 Dereck Wonnacott description i floowed commands on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/EncryptedPrivateDirectory to create a private dir. i mounted it, then put something in it. then unmounted Private dir. now Private dir contains only "THIS DIRECTORY HAS BEEN UNMOUNTED TO PROTECT YOUR DATA -- Run mount.ecryptfs_private to mount again" but, when i got to ~/.Private dir, i can see all private files... this should not be i think... why those files are stored there ? they can be visible by anyone that gets disk. thanks, hope you success in Ubuntu..... As Per https://wiki.ubuntu.com/EncryptedPrivateDirectory I created a private directory. Ii mounted it, then put some files in it. Then unmounted the Private dir. ~/Private contains only "THIS DIRECTORY HAS BEEN UNMOUNTED TO PROTECT YOUR DATA -- Run mount.ecryptfs_private to mount again" ~/.Private still contains all the private files, albeit the contents are indeed encrypted... I had expected that the filesystem of ~/Private would also be encrypted so that a potential data thief would not even know what files I have on my system.
