      EncFS provides an encrypted filesystem in user-space. It runs without any special permissions and uses the FUSE library and Linux kernel module to provide the filesystem interface. You can find links to source and binary releases below.

      The actual audit, which the author participated in, is here: https://defuse.ca/audits/encfs.htm
