Interested in securely sharing a secret?

Post date: September 17, 2006, 08:09 Category: Security Views: 2853 Comments
Tutorial quote: I needed a method for sharing a secret that required multiple agents to coordinate before the secret could be recovered. This is useful for encrypting keys used in critical backups. I decided to use an implementation of Shamir's Secret Splitting Scheme (The S in RSA).

Currently I'm using a program called 'ssss' to do secret sharing.

Tutorial quote: It is so convenient to take pictures on digital cameras that (it has been argued) we are all becoming better photographers: we take more pictures and therefore are able to choose only the best for printing and sharing.

Post date: September 22, 2011, 10:09 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 4095 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial explains how you can mount a directory from a remote server on the local server securely using SSHFS. SSHFS (Secure SHell FileSystem) is a filesystem that serves files/directories securely over SSH, and local users can use them just as if the were local files/directories. On the local computer, the remote share is mounted via FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace). I will use Debian Squeeze for both the local and the remote server.
