What is PSSE?

PSSE Stands for PlayStation Suite Encrypted, its an encryption layer that encrypts a PSM game's filesystem, its comparable to PFS in alot of ways, however it seems there was a bug at sony where besides executable files, the first directory level of a PSM app is not encrypted with PSSE, its only directory levels below the root of RO/

also PSM SaveData does not get PSSE Encryption applied.
