## Installation

### On Amazon Linux distributions

For those using Amazon Linux or Amazon Linux 2, the easiest way to install `efs-utils` is from Amazon's repositories:

```
$ sudo yum -y install amazon-efs-utils
```

### On other Linux distributions

Other distributions require building the package from source and installing it.

```

#### Run tests

- [Set up a virtualenv](http://libzx.so/main/learning/2016/03/13/best-practice-for-virtualenv-and-git-repos.html) for efs-utils

```
$ virtualenv ~/.envs/efs-utils
$ source ~/.envs/efs-utils/bin/activate
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
```

- Run tests

```
$ make test
```

## Usage

### mount.efs

`efs-utils` includes a mount helper utility to simplify mounting and using EFS file systems.

To mount with the recommended default options, simply run:

```
$ sudo mount -t efs file-system-id efs-mount-point/
```

90
To mount over TLS, simply add the `tls` option:

```
93
$ sudo mount -t efs -o tls file-system-id efs-mount-point/

95
```

96
To authenticate with EFS using the system’s IAM identity, add the `iam` option. This option requires the `tls` option.

100
101
102
$ sudo mount -t efs -o tls,iam file-system-id efs-mount-point/
```

To mount using an access point, use the `accesspoint=` option. This option requires the `tls` option.
103
The access point must be in the "available" state before it can be used to mount EFS.
104
105
106

109
110
111
112

```
$ sudo mount -t efs -o tls,accesspoint=access-point-id file-system-id efs-mount-point/
```

To mount your file system automatically with any of the options above, you can add entries to `/efs/fstab` like:

```
file-system-id efs-mount-point efs _netdev,tls,iam,accesspoint=access-point-id 0 0

`efs-utils` contains a watchdog process to monitor the health of TLS mounts. This process is managed by either `upstart` or `systemd` depending on your Linux distribution, and is started automatically the first time an EFS file system is mounted over TLS.

## Upgrading stunnel for RHEL/CentOS

By default, when using the EFS mount helper with TLS, it enforces certificate hostname checking. The EFS mount helper uses the `stunnel` program for its TLS functionality. Please note that some versions of Linux do not include a version of `stunnel` that supports TLS features by default. When using such a Linux version, mounting an EFS file system using TLS will fail.

Once you’ve installed the `amazon-efs-utils` package, to upgrade your system’s version of `stunnel`, see [Upgrading Stunnel](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/efs/latest/ug/using-amazon-efs-utils.html#upgrading-stunnel).
