libntfs - library for accessing and managing NTFS volumes
libntfs is GPL licensed library for accessing and managing NTFS volumes.
It is used by ntfsprogs and some other projects.
ACCESSING ENCRYPTED FILES
Programs 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.
libntfs was written by Anton Altaparmakov, Richard Russon, Szabolcs Szakacsits, Yuval Fledel and Yura Pakhuchiy.
