Fast Secure File System

FSFS is a secure, distributed, scalable, user-space file system that exports existing directories securely over the network, letting users store and retrieve encrypted data in a transparent way. FSFS is written as a pair of user space daemons that act as clients and servers. Servers export an existing file system (of virtually any kind) to clients over the network.

    Release Notes: This release fixes two bugs. One bug related to socket creation and would cause problems on some systems (namely OpenSUSE 10.2). The other bug related to server configuration creation when using the Python configuration utilities. Users don't need to upgrade to this release if they're not experiencing problems or are not using the Python configuration utilities.

      Release Notes: This release adds server support on Mac OS X 10.3 and above and two new Python configuration utilities (also contained in a new dedicated Debian package). The login procedure was changed to use a well-known port to ease use behind firewalls. In addition, it changes the default configuration files' location to help when users want to encrypt their home directories on the server. The FUSE API version 2.5.3 is used. Some of these changes make this release incompatible with previous releases.

        Release Notes: This release fixes a potential denial of service attack on the client by changing the login process slightly and adding more security checks. Therefore, it is advised to upgrade both servers and clients. Configuration scripts have also been improved and other bugfixes and tweaks have been made throughout the source files and the Makefiles. Work is underway to port the server to other operating systems and to add new features.
