Update gocryptfs to 1.7.1

Authored by r3r57 on Oct 8 2019, 10:56 AM.


  • Support wild cards in reverse mode via --exclude-wildcard.
  • Create gocryptfs.diriv files with 0440 permissions to make it easier to share an encrypted folder via a network drive. Note: as a security precaution, the owner must still manually chmod gocryptfs.conf 0440 to allow mounting.
  • Allow the nofail option in /etc/fstab
  • -passwd can now change the -scryptn parameter for existing filesystems.
  • Fix -idle unmounting the filesystem despite recent activity.
  • Fix a race condition related to inode number reuse.
Test Plan

Installed and tested, initilize and mount gocryptfs directory, add new files and unmount, inspect encrypted files, remount directory and view/edit files which are properly decrypted
