Encryption

"The design might not be perfect, but it’s good. Encryption is a first-class feature, the implementation looks sane and I guess the deduplication trade-off is worth it. So… I’m going to use restic for my personal backups." Filippo Valsorda

Manage repository keys

The key command allows you to set multiple access keys or passwords per repository. In fact, you can use the list, add, remove, and passwd (changes a password) sub-commands to manage these keys very precisely:

$ restic -r /srv/restic-repo key list
enter password for repository:
 ID          User        Host        Created
----------------------------------------------------------------------

$ restic -r /srv/restic-repo key add
enter password for repository:
enter password for new key:
enter password again:
saved new key as <Key of username@kasimir, created on 2015-08-12 13:35:05.316831933 +0200 CEST>

$ restic -r /srv/restic-repo key list
enter password for repository:
 ID          User        Host        Created
