This module is aimed at environments with central file servers that a
user wishes to mount on login and unmount on logout, such as
(semi-)diskless stations where many users can logon.
The module also supports mounting local filesystems of any kind the
normal mount utility supports, with extra code to make sure certain
volumes are set up properly because often they need more than just a
mount call, such as encrypted volumes. This includes SMB/CIFS, NCP,
davfs2, FUSE, losetup crypto, dm-crypt/cryptsetup and truecrypt.
If you intend to use pam_mount to protect volumes on your computer
using an encrypted filesystem system, please know that there are many
other issues you need to consider in order to protect your data.  For
example, you probably want to disable or encrypt your swap partition.
Don't assume a system is secure without carefully considering
potential threats.
