Locking up Linux: Creating a Cryptobook

Benchmarks And Analysis, Continued

And finally re-read events on those partitions:

CryptoFS and EncFS reach their ideal performance levels as the file size and record lengths approach the native page size on 32-bit Linux systems (4096 kB). Both perform well behind the LUKS implementation, as we expected them to do. Going through the various FUSE and cryptographic file system abstractions imposes additional latency on all read and write operations, however.
