I'm using "eCryptfs" on several directories on my dedicated Debian server. I mount them manually via
mount -t ecryptfs [dir] [mountpoint]
But after some weeks being mounted it's not easy to remember the exact passwords for each directory. I want to make sure that I got the right passwords before unmounting them or rebooting the server.
I thought of generating an "eCryptfs" signature and comparing it with the directory's "eCryptfs" signature. Which parameters do I need to know and what is the algorithm for the "eCryptfs" signature? And is this the right way to verify my password?
