LXer: Encrypted offsite backup with EncFS, Amazon S3, and s3cmd

Published at LXer:

Iíve been using Jungle Disk to do offsite backups of my data. Jungle Disk uses Amazonís cheap online storage service, Amazon S3, to host backups. (15 cents a gig!) I donít like Jungle Disk because itís not open source and because the app is a little clunky, at least on Linux. I recently found that s3cmd could do an rsync-like sync of a directory. Thatís cool, but it doesnít do encrypted backups like Jungle Disk did. In this post, Iíll demonstrate how to make an encrypted backup of locally unencrypted data using EncFS, Amazon S3, and s3cmd.
