pam_mount is a Pluggable Authentication Module that can mount volumes for a user session upon login, using the same passwords as for login. It supports any filesystem your kernel is capable of, including FUSE, SMB/CIFS, various crypto types, and more.

Release Notes: An "allow_discard" option was added to support an extra case of FSTRIM support. The config file now allows the user to specify user/group names by regex.
Release Notes: This release restores keyfile support for non-crypto mounts. A new cryptmount library is shipped that contains the code shared among pam_mount and its utilities. libmount from util-linux 2.20 is now utilized in part as well.
Release Notes: This release restores support in mount.crypt for files >= 4 GB.
Release Notes: Networked volumes do not require a "server" attribute anymore, which allows integration with pam_winbind and Active Directory. Multiple diagnostics were added to umount.crypt to help determine details of potential failures.
Release Notes: This release adds a retry sequence for unloading loop devices. More graceful handling for systems with read-only mtab was put in place.
