    • encrypted folder

      Hi
      im new to OMV so im not sure if this has been discussed earlier. The search function doesnt show me any usefull results related to this.
      Up to now im using my old Synology NAS but i would like to switch. Synology has a nice feature which allows encrypted folders and not only complete volumes, like QNAP does. They use ecryptfs . Using

      Source Code

      1. apt-get install ecryptfs-utils
      it is possible to install and use this

      Source Code

      1. root@nas04:/mnt/vol1# ecryptfsd
      2. root@nas04:/mnt/vol1# ecryptfs-setup-private
      3. Enter your login passphrase [root]:
      4. Enter your mount passphrase [leave blank to generate one]:
      5. ************************************************************************
      6. YOU SHOULD RECORD YOUR MOUNT PASSPHRASE AND STORE IT IN A SAFE LOCATION.

      1. /root/.Private 109G 1,3G 102G 2% /root/Private


      But thats not what im looking for. It would be good to have this as an option for shared folder creation with the option to store the key on an attached USB drive.
      Why ? In case a HD is defect and you can no longer wipe the HD and the information on this HD will be available to the manufactorer of the HD.
      And this is something i personally dont like.

      Are there any plans to include this in the future ?
      I have seen the following on bugtracker: bugtracker.openmediavault.org/view.php?id=778 and http://bugtracker.openmediavault.org/view.php?id=7 but im not sure how to read all this comments. will it come or not ?
