Just a short update on my progress as we come to the end of GSoC.

I have implemented the ability to create new encrypted directories, and have detecting and mounting existing encryptions working.

To be fully functioning, I just need to implement keyring integration now.

Finally, a screenshot of what it looks like when you open an encrypted directory:

    Looks great! Will it be in the default Nautilus installation or is it a plugin?

    Looks interesting. I’ve protected a folder using encfs last week and I was wondering why it was not integrated with files.

    What is the process to encrypt a folder with your implementation ?

      When I sort out the interface properly for encrypting, you will be able to set it up from the properties window of a folder. I’ll post an update once I have this implemented.
