I'm planning how to implement encryption in my backup program, Obnam. Review is welcome.
@liw Just spitballin' here, but it would probably speed up the development process a bunch to focus 100% on the encryption, and let future maintainers worry about decryption. Don't know why so few projects take that approach. It seems so clear.
@n8 I'm not sure I understand: how would I focus on encryption, without also implementing decryption?
@n8 @liw Backup software without functional restore is not functional backup software. Decryption is really important feature!
@oherrala The more I think about it, the more I think that @liw should implement encrypting backups as a free feature, and decrypting backups as an "enterprise" or "pro" feature....
