Common question to server-side encryption and caldav carddav

Hello world,

just a simple question to server-side encryption, didn’t find answer with searching.

Does server-side encryption also include the accounts addresses (contacts) and calendars?

Or are simply the files stored on the filesystem encrypted?

Thank you and have a nice day.

Yes, only the files on your hard disk are encrypted, not the database nor any account details etc.

Okay thanks for your quick reply.

Too bad so if you need privacy especially for your contacts and have no own hosted database instance so this is not the solution.

Anyway thank you, maybe this is good for a feature request!?

I think such a request has already been created but it has an absolutely low priority for the Nextcloud team, as you can read here:

Nevertheless pull request are welcome for all kind of features :wink:
