Where cam I get a basic/simple introduction to E2E encyption on NextCloud?

Is E2E encyption on NextCloud already implemented or must I load some 3th party application like CryptoMator, 7ZIP…?

End-to-End encryption is a mix of two things:

  • an optional app called end_to_end_encryption that you must install on the server (as long as you are not also using server-side encryption via the encryption app)
  • using one or more of the official Nextcloud clients (not Web since that you won’t be able to access your end-to-end encrypted files on the Web UI any longer by definition)

Anyhow to answer the question:

The above docs were recently extensively expanded.

Thank You. It is exactly what I was looking for. Encryption on the cliet side was the issue…
