Folder lock can indicate a number of things. Are we talking about encryption, permissions or something else?

Surely your college tutor has supplied you with enough information to complete your project? I don't think it's usual to ask you to do something you haven't been taught.

Play Bonny!

You haven't explained what you mean by "locking" a folder. Nor have you told us where you're done and how you're getting stuck. How do you expect anyone to help you without even the most basic information? No one is going to do your homework for you; you have to show that you've put in some effort on your own to (a) think about the problem and (b) come up with a solution.

I apologize for that...

Guys i mean that i have to build a application for linux OS which helps us to lock a folder in other words ...

It denies the unauthorized user from a password. It means the user has to give password for accessing that particular folder.
Please suggest me where do i start.."i have no idea :-( "


what are the steps required

You can also look at dm-crypt if you want to lock an entire filesystem (the post title references the kernel, so it's not clear if the OP's assignment involves doing something at the filesystem level).

Any.

Any further questions? Because until you can actually show some effort of your own, (such as code/scripts/programs/SOMETHING), there is nothing we can do for you. You have been given suggestions, but we are NOT going to do your homework for you. Read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature.

@OP a letter from your professor stating we can help you?
Not that I am much for rules as long as you learn what it is you are suppose to be learning.

what level of college class are you in to have to do such a thing? I'd think an advance programming class to have to develop software. Therefore someone of that caliber should know more about what he is suppose to be doing. MO of course....

The question that comes to my mind is - how can you be in the dark on the requirements for a class project?

What class are you in and what have you been learning up to this point to be able to make a directory locking program?

What does the project assignment say?

I don't believe that a teacher is going to hand you an assignment that says "create a program like cryptkeeper" without any other information. Such a request certainly isn't going to get you very far here... as we volunteer our time to help people - and we are not in the habit of writing class outlines or programs for people. That is your teacher's job and your responsiblity.

If you have a specific question regarding your assignment, and you have an example of what you have tried, and some error output, then you are more likely to get help. Help us help you!
