comment Information leakage from the ecryptfs filesystem
@HamishDowner, if you have the wrapped-passphrase, that's correct. Note that you may not necessarily have the wrapped-passphrase. I store mine on a removable sd card or usb key.

The primary difference between eCryptfs and EncFS is that eCryptfs is an in-kernel filesystem and uses the in-kernel keyring and in-kernel crypto algorithms, and EncFS is user space filesystem that uses FUSE.
