Default Secure (encrypted) online sharing

Hi folks,

I am looking for a secure online sharing service what will allow me to create multiple directories on a server and allot them to multiple users - with each user being restricted to his account/directory.

Of importance, the system should be accessible via an easy-to-use web-based interface and should be secure (at least 128-bit encryption).

Any of you with experience on this kindly suggest.

Thanks!

depends on the level of sophistication you are looking for.

a crude way of doing it would be: run web server on your home computer, set it up for HTTPS, and enforce directory level access control. others can use the service as long as the server is up. but then again, you are probably looking for something more advanced.

Unlikely to get "secure" service for free.

Directly level permissions should be available! Does yahoo briefcase service still exist? Won't it provide directory level sharing control?


if users are friends.. and limited.. you can encrypt the files before uploading and share them over non-secure proto.

For business. I would like to pay for it. I have 10 users in mind to begin with, with the option of adding users as needed.

The site has to be secure and not too slow either.

Thanks for inputs.


Any ideas regarding iStorage Professional from Iomega?

i have no prior experience in this area but your post got me interested. i know only "secure" and "directory level access control" as your requirements. more info might help others to suggest better alternatives (such as file size, read-only access to users? etc.)

what about hosted CVS/SVN/VSS like products such as CVSDude: Professional CVS Hosting and Subversion Hosting

Also will this URL be useful?

Hi Androdev,

Thanks. File sizes will be almost invariably below 20 MB per file, and read/write access would be needed (at least for most users). I am looking at the links..
