Does the owner of an encrypted directory need to be logged for it to be accessible by the system?
If the user's directory is encrypted, ie other directories besides the
home directory, does it mean that no process on the system, including those running as root will be able to access it?
Does the user have to be logged in physically on the computer for the files to be available? For instance, I assume that the user cannot log in via SSH using key authentication if the
authorized_keys file which would be in the
~/.ssh directory, but have to login at the terminal for via a remote
spice connection for access to the directory to be enabled, before logging in via SSH if that is needed.
If the user has a database or web application stored in the encrypted directory I would expect it not to be able to start until physical login.
Is that right because that is what I need. If there any services running in the encrypted directory, would the system know to shut them down if the user logged out?
