Now you have run NextCloud as your cloud storage? That is great! That means your data is safe. Other people cannot access it. Or is it?
Where do you run your NextCloud? Or where does it save your data?
Amazon? Google? Microsoft? Oracle? RedHat? Wasabi? Alibaba?
Are you really sure they cannot access your data?
Or perhaps you need Cryptomator to help you?
But, if Cryptomator can help you, theoretically, you can safely use Google Drive and OneDrive as well, hmmm, right?
I usually mount my drives with davfs2 and encrypt it on the fly with gocryptfs.
@selea That's great. Thanks for the reference / tutorial.
The encryption surely helps a lot. Do you happen to have the bare metal at your home?
I am actually running my personal instance in a bigger cephfs environment, so not at home :)
There is the advantage of the nextcloud client being open source, so even if you encrypt everything, that's an advantage
@SentientTed Yes, I am agree 100% with you. NextCloud is a great piece of libre software indeed.
Its code also had been audited, which make it even better.
In addition, encryption will make it superb.
I love NextCloud as well. I wish more and more people adopt it.
@heavenly_general in data broker world, metadata is just as important as data
@morenonatural I agree with you. ProtonVPN (or ProtonMail) has discussed about the security impact of metadata.
But so far, there is no any great solution for this problem.
Especially because the mail courier needs to know the address on the envelope to be able to send the letter to the right destination.
