Keeping your files safe in the post-Snowden era with SXFS

Filesystem encryption has been readily available since the dawn of times, but it still requires external software to protect against data loss. Many users rely on proprietary cloud storage clients (like Dropbox) to synchronize their encrypted data across multiple devices. SXFS is a GPL licensed FUSE-based filesystem for Linux and OSX, which features client-side encryption (AES256), horizontal scalability and fault-tolerance out of the box. With just two commands you create and mount a fully deniable network storage which keeps your data safe from prying eyes. In this lightning talk I will demonstrate how to get SXFS up and running and how easy it is to maintain and scale out.
