someone wanted to hide their data?
a former manager of mine worked at bell labs. he was saying that you
never left encrypted files in your dirs because it was just asking people
to crack it. generally folks respected privacy, and wouldn't even read
the decrypt, but just for the challenge. :)
looking through the docs though it still doesn't seem plausible.
i know there are kernel modules that can affect what root and other users
see, so i guess one could make an lkm where you give it a pid and then
only that pid and it's children can see the files.
as an aside, has anyone tried making an fs in a file, mounting it,
and then copying the file to the mount point? i don't really have a
machine to test this on. :) actually i doubt it would crash, the
fs on the file would fill up.
anyway random ramblings...
