A remote of type
crypt may be configured according to several options related to file name encryption. Multiple encryption techniques are available, and encryption of names may apply to regular files only, to both files and directories, or to neither.
In some cases, a user may wish to keep the top level directories in plain text, but to encrypt lower level names, of directories and files.
For example, consider a local tree, of content in plain text, structured as follows:
A user may wish to synchronize the tree with a remote target, but encrypt only
private2, keeping the top level names as plain text.
crypt remote type supported an option for preserving only the top-level names in plain text, then a user could configure a remote target as such, and separately synchronize each top-level directory, either directly or through the
crypt wrapper, according to privacy demands.
Would other users benefit from such a feature? Would it be considered for development?
