EncFS provides an encrypted filesystem in userspace and runs without any special permissions. In fact, it's not so much a filesystem as a program that translates requests (encrypting or decrypting them as appropriate) and passes them to the underlying filesystem. It uses the Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) library and kernel module to provide the filesystem interface, and it uses a pass-through filesystem as opposed to an encrypted block device.
