End to End Encryption on 14

Hello guys, I need use end to end encryption for my client following the gdpr regulation, someon know if in 14 it is working good ?
Thanks for your help


I would be very interested to hear what the status of this App is as well. From what I could see on the nextcloud website it should be ready for production (https://nextcloud.com/endtoend/). But in the appstore e2e (https://apps.nextcloud.com/apps/end_to_end_encryption) still shows as being alpha software, kind of a showstopper to roll it out in production if you ask me.

Not ready for production yet, still tech review phase. i.e. sharing is not supported at the moment.

I need proose some to my clients, tha tare asking me about end to end encryption for gdpr compliance, I tought to propose Nextcloud, reading the website advice about end to end encryption, next week I will propose nextclou, or boole or tenharit
any suggestion ?

For client side encryption, you could use cryptomator. It’s open source as well and can use Nextcloud as storage backend (via webdav). If it is only for a few files, you can use an encrypted container like VeraCrypt.

If you want to offer it to a client, this feature must be official and you need to have time to test it yourself.

…but owncloud have end to end ?
they says yes… but also the nextcloud web says same

I haven’t seen this option in their client yet, perhaps I missed something…

They have it for Enterprise customers only. (and it’s a 3rd party developed app)

And closed source.

Very true.

I’ve been reading through most of the docs for e2ee, but the status of the overall implementation is not very clear to me. Is there a road map somewhere which would show which features of the RFC have already been implemented and which ones are still missing?

The desktop client seems to be final: https://download.nextcloud.com/desktop/releases/Windows/

Whats the status? I can see that for NC15 End-to-End Encryption App version 1.1.0 is available. Any experiences? I recently started to use client-side encryption because I found out that server-side encryption is actually not enough when on shared NC hosting. Although I believe it is still better then nothing. It takes another step for a server admin to decrypt the files with the key. I started using Cryptomator together with the Nextcloud desktop client for most sensitive files. That seems to be the best available option.

Hello Joe, i was trying to have some information too about end to end encryption, noone is using it ?
