Projects / MinorFs


MinorFS combines a small set of cooperating userspace filesystems for Linux that provide private storage to pseudo persistent processes. This allows programs that are run by a user to keep some data safe from all potential malware that runs with all this users' privileges. It further implements simple password capabilities as a way to explicitly share access with other processes or users.
