A good starting point is the mount.ecryptfs_private(1) man page and the ecryptfs-mount-private(1) interactive command. Beware, I have never used this; on my ubuntu 14.04 I opted for encrypted home dirs and I now have a per-user directory /home/.ecryptfs/user/.ecryptfs/ with encryption info in several files, and /home/.ecryptfs/user/.Private/ with the ...
