comment Information leakage from the ecryptfs filesystem
@DustinKirkland: To obtain the contents of any particular file without knowing your login passphrase, the minimum you need is: the wrapped-passphrase file and enough time to brute force your login passphrase - they just try each login passphrase in turn until they get a plaintext they can verify - whether that be the mount passphrase, or trying a file considered likely to be ASCII text and verifying the bytes are all ASCII. You don't need to brute force the random mount passphrase.
