Dear everyone

As I understand it, the Cryptographic Disk is good for protecting data 
locally, and preventing people from even seeing file names if they 
physically get access to your computer.  Meanwhile, Cryptographic File 
System from M. Blaze is good at giving network level security, particuarly 
with regards allowing access to files over a networked machine.  However, in 
CFS you can still see the file structures, and read the file names.

Now, my question.  Is it possible to use both CDG and CFS on a machine to 
ensure a high level of local security while also maintaining security while 
the machine is on a network?
