FS_GETCRYPT(1)		     AFS Command Reference		FS_GETCRYPT(1)

NAME
       fs_getcrypt - Displays the state	of encryption for AFS file transfers

SYNOPSIS
       fs getcrypt [-help]

DESCRIPTION
       The fs getcrypt command shows the status	of network traffic encryption
       for file	traffic	in the AFS client. This	encryption applies to file
       traffic going to	and coming from	the AFS	server for users with valid
       tokens. The complement of this command is fs setcrypt which sets	the
       status of encryption on the client.

CAUTIONS
       AFS uses	an encryption scheme called fcrypt, based on but slightly
       weaker than DES.	Because	fcrypt and DES are obsolete, the user must
       decide how much to trust	the encryption.	Consider using a Virtual
       Private Network at the IP level if better encryption is needed.

       Encrypting file traffic requires	a token. Unauthenticated connections
       or connections authorized via IP-based ACLs will	not be encrypted even
       when encryption is turned on.

OPTIONS
       -help
	   Prints the online help for this command. All	other valid options
	   are ignored.

OUTPUT
       If encryption is	enabled, the output is:

	  Security level is currently crypt (data security).

       If encryption if	disabled, the output is:

	  Security level is currently clear.

EXAMPLES
       There is	only one way to	invoke fs getcrypt:

	  % fs getcrypt

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED
       No special priviledges are required for this command.
