Using RootData

All CBFS Vault vaults contain a special data stream called RootData which can be used for application-defined purposes. A vault's RootData stream can only be accessed using the open_root_data method, because the stream itself is not part of the vault's filesystem hierarchy. The standalone nature of the RootData stream means that:

The RootData stream is also exempt from whole-vault encryption. This exemption is intentional; it allows applications which utilize whole-vault encryption to store information about said encryption (e.g., encrypted session keys, certificates, access control lists (ACLs), etc.) within the vault itself, thus simplifying application design.
