Just want your opinion on this setup I have for backing up my workstation to server -
I run Rsync on the workstation and connect via SSH to a local copy of Rsync on the server. I don't run it in Daemon mode as it is triggered via a shell commend. The server side Rsync has owner/group of the user who has rights to the folder where the backup will go and nothing else.
I use SSH keys and ssh-agent to keep the password so it connects without prompting for a password.
So I ssh as user1 to remote copy of rsync in user1 home directory.
rsync--ssh(user1)-->user1 dir-->rsync (as user1)
Is this approach reasonably secure? (as long as the key on the workstation is safe)
Hope that made sense to someone
