Contributed by jose on from the backups dept.
I'm developing an online backup system -- sort of like rsync, but all the data on the server is encrypted and it allows access to old versions and deleted files. It's now ready for other people to try it out:
If you're interested in automatic backup to a central server, then please give it a try and let me know how you get on. I don't think it's quite ready for production use yet, but I have been using it on a number of systems for a while.
If you don't have a suitable server, I may be able to offer an account on my server in exchange for feedback on the system.
I would also appreciate people looking over my use of cryptography, to make sure it is as secure as it should be. There are some programmers notes in the distribution archive which will help to evaluate this.
It's primarily written for OpenBSD, but I have have done initial ports to some other platforms. However, getting it to run well on OpenBSD is my primary concern, hence asking for testers in this forum.
I am releasing it under a modified BSD license, and intend to change this to a more conventional one as soon as I can. (see the web site for details)
