Good morning,
I've been wondering about this for quite some time and had little luck googling it, so maybe someone here knows the answer. My question is this. If the files stored in a file system encrypted using encfs each correspond to a file that can be decrypted on the decrypted view (mountpoint) then doesn't that mean that just knowing the file name or even some portion of the contents of a single file in the encrypted file system would render the encryption virtually useless since an attacker could just work out the encryption key from that bit of plaintext?
