My project requires me to download some info in an encrypted volume on my disk. (ubuntu 16.04 version). Needless to say this is very sensitive info. Now i want to figure out what’s the best way to do this? I see there are some utilities available to do this. I was looking to use : encfs.
Using this i need to mount the encrypted folder everytime, but durinng this time, if my mahcine is on the net, is it vulnerable to attacks?
