[liberationtech] Intro/Projects

Hi Charles. Regarding #1, there are dozens of open source projects and
companies that support end-to-end encryption for Dropbox-like storage
services. In fact, Box KeySafe already supports customer-managed keys.

Some examples that support end-to-end encryption: Boxcryptor, Mozy (now
EMC), Owncloud, Spideroak, Sync, Sookasa, Tresorit, Wuala (defunct). I only
give these as examples and do not endorse any in particular; some of these
may be poor quality or no longer active.

People have stored encrypted disk volumes on a cloud services using
something like Truecrypt or Veracrypt. For PGP specifically, PGPDisk was
created almost 20 years old (and is obsolete).

That doesn't preclude building something to learn. But if you share it,
make it very clear that it is for learning purposes only and not for

 I had two ideas for things I could build but I want to know if they've
already been done/whether they're bad ideas:

1) Cloud storage.
I think it would be relatively easy to write a program where any file I
save in folder X automatically gets encrypted and saved to folder Y
Box/Dropbox/etc.  Any new files saved in Y which my key can open get opened
and put in folder X.  Since the private key password would be saved for
this to work automatically, it would be worthless if someone got on my
machine, but if one of the cloud providers gets compromised, all they would
have is a collection of encrypted files.
