I just started to use tahoe and it seems very interesting. I don't know
if you already talked about that on this ml, but I will share with you
my thought about the file aliases in clear text.
I don't trust my laptop (the disk is not encrypted), I was wondering
which risks I'm facing as the file in aliases in private is not
encrypted, so I just modified my backup script with two lines to decrypt
the file and srm it (secure rm). First step (one time) is to encrypt the
file (gpg -c --cipher-algo BLOWFISH private/aliases), and here is an
gpg --output /home/user/.tahoe/private/aliases -d
tahoe backup file backup:
echo "Backup done... cleaned config files"
