NextCloud proudly advertises End2End Encryption at
Unfortunately, it’s a bit more terse when it comes to concrete instructions of how to actually use / enable it an what’s needed to to so.
There seems to have been quite a bit of buzz about this topic about a year ago, yet the corresponding app still warns that it’s a beta release and really should not be used for anything else than test data:
Mh. Encrypting test data only does not look like a killer feature to me.
I’m not really in a situation that I’d like to utilize E2EE using the Windows and Linux desktop clients on data which I actually also want to be able to get back again - reliably.
- Is E2EE in NextCloud actually usable nowadays, or still not yet?
- If it is, what’s the best combination of server, app and client - will NextCloud 14 and App version 1.0.5 suffice, or is NextCloud 15 with App version 1.1.0 better / more recommended?
- Does the standard desktop client build version 2.5.2 have E2EE enabled and in a usable state?
- Will I risk anything concerning my unencrypted data which already resides on the server (and shall stay unencrypted)?
