Public encryption key

Question

Hi guys,

 

I just caught up with the changelist, and I noticed that "unencrypted" drives are now actually encrypted with a public static key. Are there plans to publish this key? Has it been published anywhere? I think it's important to have access to it for data recovery purposes.

 

Thanks!

Hi guys,

Thanks!

 

Expanding on that, do we have a data recovery procedure at all yet? Even if we know the key, that wouldn't help me stitch all those chunks back together and recover my files. 

 

I really like what Arq Backup does. They have an opensource program that is on github that does nothing but download & decrypt chunks, allowing you to download your files. Handy if the developer suddenly disappears, the app stops working years down the road if/when it is no longer supported or any number of scenarios. 

 

The data format is even fully documented. https://sreitshamer.github.io/arq_restore/

 

Hopefully Alex has something similar on the roadmap (think I may have seen it mentioned that he does).

If he doesn't, he WILL.  (or we'll have a utility to do this, or something).

I'm not sure, I'll have to ask.
