Need some information on Ecryptfs


I need some information on Ecryptfs

1. What is the best Combination of cipher and its respective key length to be used in ecryptfs? (eg. aes-32/blowfish-24,etc....)
2. In the Power Off condition, how safe and robust is ecryptfs i.e. in the power off scenario, is ecryptfs highly secure?
3. If the power supply is suddenly switched off, does it have an affect on the encrypted data being saved on hard disk?

If you have any web links on the above information or related to it, could you please send them to me.

I would recommend you send a message to the ecyptfs users mailing list.

Also, take a look at the tried and testing True Crypt.
