Self-Certifying File System development files

SFS is a secure, global filesystem with completely decentralized control. It takes NFS shares exported from localhost and transports them securely to other hosts; NFS services do not need to be exposed to network. SFS features key management and authorization separated from filesystem with key revocation separated from key distribution.

SFS requires solid NFSv3 support; Linux kernel version 2.2.18, 2.4.0 or greater is required (earlier versions need patching).

This package contains SFS development files.
