NAMElibntfs - library for accessing and managing NTFS volumes
OVERVIEWlibntfs is GPL licensed library for accessing and managing NTFS volumes. It is used by ntfsprogs and some other projects.
ACCESSING ENCRYPTED FILESPrograms that uses libntfs can transparently access encrypted files on NTFS volumes if libntfs was compiled with --enable-crypto option (it depends on libgcrypt, GNU TLS and libconfig) and user wrote configuration file. Configuration file should be placed in /etc/libntfs/config or $(HOME)/.libntfs/config and contain list of .PFX key files (see ntfsprogs-<version>/libntfs/config in ntfsprogs source tarball for sample configuration file). Key files can be created/exported using cipher tool under windows.
AUTHORSlibntfs was written by Anton Altaparmakov, Richard Russon, Szabolcs Szakacsits, Yuval Fledel and Yura Pakhuchiy.
