How far can one trust the cloud keeper ?

encfs is opensource, the libraries live on the cloud keeper's servers. They can be hacked to pipe any password to a persistent storage !

They don't care about one's cooking receipts, but what about sensitive data ?

Beyond the bounds of the article, cloud computing is about trusting one's personal affairs to a third party and it's fascinating to see how people rush to anything that is served to them. What has happened to the people ? I won't trust my balls to anyone, encrypted or not !

Encrypted nads....hmm, I sense a business opportunity. "Safekeeping the family jewels".

Its not the kind of encryption, but where you keep them. LOL

I'm not so much interested in the encrypted nads as in using open-source tools to do full encrypted backups to the Amazon S3 (via EC2 ... or not) cloud ... and so an idiot like me can understand it.
