SharedSafe 3.0.3332

SharedSafe turns Email accounts into online file storage. We call this kind of storage a Safe. And we believe we have very good reason for doing so.
SharedSafe uses an encrypted file system to store your files in a Safe. Everything is encrypted: the file names, the folder hierarchy and of course the file data as well.
The keys for this encryption will remain in your hands alone. They will not be known to the provider of the Email account. And they will not be known to the makers of SharedSafe.
In other words: while using SharedSafe you do not have to trust anyone and you remain the true and sole owner of your data. And that is the way it should be.
If you choose to, SharedSafe supports to export the key of a Safe. This exported key enables you - or anyone you have entrusted the key - to access the Safe from anywhere in the Internet.

The key aspect of SharedSafe are Safes. So let`s have a closer look at them.
SharedSafe uses the IMAP protocol to access your Email account. A Safe now is simply an IMAP folder within such an account.
Within a Safe`s folder SharedSafe creates a file system which is able to store file trees like the ones on your hard drive.
This file system consists of ordinary - albeit specially crafted - Emails stored in the Safe`s IMAP folder.
SharedSafe never uses your Email account`s inbox folder to create a Safe. Because of this a Safe within your account will never get in the way of your regular Emails.
And because every Safe uses its own IMAP folder it is of course possible to create more than one Safe within an Email account.

Ok, a Safe can store a file tree and its data is stored within an IMAP folder of your Email account.
But the real power of SharedSafe unfolds when local folders on your computer are linked to Safes.
When linked together, SharedSafe will automatically synchronize the contents of a local folder and its linked Safe. The local folder now has become a "linked folder".
This synchronization works in both directions. Every file change in a linked folder will be synchronized to its Safe.
But also every change in a Safe - a Safe`s file tree may change if you have shared the Safe - is synchronized back to its linked folder.
SharedSafe will always keep the files in a linked folder. So if you are not connected to the Internet you still can continue to work with your files.
When you are online again SharedSafe will resume to synchronize the linked folder and its Safe.

So far we have been talking about the "Safe" part of SharedSafe. Now let`s get to the "Shared" part.
SharedSafe allows you to share a Safe. What does that precisely mean?
Suppose you have created a Safe and a linked folder on your computer. By sharing this Safe you enable yourself or somebody else to create a linked folder to this very Safe on another computer.
Sharing Safes opens a whole range of applications for SharedSafe.
You may be interested in keeping your personal files in sync on all the scattered computers you are working with.
By sharing a Safe multiple times it is even possible for a team so set up a shared (but private) network drive on the Internet for all of the team members.
SharedSafe implements the sharing of Safes via Safe Keys. A Safe Key is generated by SharedSafe if you choose to export a Safe.
Physically a Safe Key is a small - always encrypted and optionally password protected - file containing all the information required to access the Safe`s IMAP folder and its encrypted file tree.
So Safe Keys are - like real keys - very sensitive objects. Never forget: despite all of SharedSafe`s support for handling Safe Keys, the responsibility for them is yours alone.

Sharing a Safe requires two steps. The first one is to export the Safe and thereby creating its Safe Key.
The second step is to import the Safe Key into SharedSafe. Once imported you may link any local folder on your computer to this new Safe. Its file tree will then be accessible to you in the new linked folder.
The export and import of a Safe usually take place on different computers connected to the Internet. So in order to share the Safe its Safe Key has to be transfered from the computer where it has been exported to the computer where it should be imported.
The support of SharedSafe for this transfer should be as secure as possible. It should be as convenient as possible. And of course it should be as transparent as possible. Well, not really a simple task.
SharedSafe has been designed to maximize the transparency and security part. And to compromise on the conveniency part.
SharedSafe does not offer any built in functionality for the automatic distribution of Safe Keys. It rather supports to import Safe Key files from and export them to local files on your computer.
With this approach it is up to you to manually distribute the Safe Keys as you require. While this is not the most convenient support it is very transparent. You will always know where your Safe Keys are and what happened to them because you are the only one handling them.
SharedSafe will always encrypt and optionally password protect the generated Safe Key files. This allows you to securely transfer Safe Keys even via inherently unsecure channels (e.g. not encrypted Emails).
