  1. @aeaejei thanks for links. I found Symform (http://www.symform.com) which is exactly what I've been looking for. Thank you.
  2. I Agree, those are two different things, and depends as think could be resolved with the same tool. When I speak of files that will be stored / backuped in this p2p network, I mean that those files will be encrypted to one or more people, so that these will be the only ones able to see that file, this can be done by asymetric encryption (more info in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public-key_cryptography). This would allow users to share files between certain users (as is done for example with google drive). You could even set up a public folder (where the files are not encrypted), so that there can store files that are available for anyone (somenthing like the public dropbox folder). Regarding the content copyright and adults, when it comes to the legal side, being encrypted files with private keys of users owners, these would be the only ones who can decrypt, and therefore the only ones with access to the same (in fact, there are privates files), so this problem should not matter much, since it would be the responsibility of each user to take care of your files. When it comes to the occupied space, remember to use 1GB of space on the P2P network, necessarily should make available to the community (the other users of the p2p network) at least 4 or 5Gb(this should be a necessary condition for joining to this p2p network) with what the community grow beyond the capacity of each user intends to store. This is a very basic diagram of what I think about this tool http://www.gliffy.com/go/publish/6017743 @Mattia DL "fog backup system", sounds really good!!! . A tentative name could be FoGBox
  3. Ok well understood @Journeyman, we are thinking in differents things.
  4. @ Journeyman the idea is to have a repository of personal files that may be distributed over a network of unknown peers, so that one could synchronize your files with each of its devices (tablet, phone, notebook, etc.), as bittorrent sync does, but without the need to have all your devices turned on for that synchronization becomes effective, instead of, the idea is using as intermediaries to other peers. For example, if I add a file on my desktop pc to my shared (private) folder, that file should be split and replicated on multiple peers, so that if you then turn off the PC desktop, and later turn on the notebook, that file can be synchronized with the same shared folder from the notebook, but by downloading from peers rather than the desktop pc. It would be a kind of Dropbox, but without a central server infrastructure, just using for this purpose a P2P network of unknown peers. - To use the P2P network of unknow peers, to hosted your personal files, necessarily you should donate your hard drive space to the community so that others can use it to store your personal files (for example, to use 1Gb of p2p network, you must donate 5Gb to the comunity). - Necessarily, when a file is hosted on the computer of another person (a stranger), this should be stored encrypted (using this encryptación asymmetric, as the use of public / private key). - That way maybe I could set a policy that no peer may have a full file from another user, only a percentage of it (ie, avoid seeds exist). - It would be good that the use of trackers is not required, but instead can use something similar to what makes Tribler (http://www.tribler.org/trac/wiki/whatIsTribler) for reporting this network of peers. - On what is pornography and files copyrights, being a personal folder, and to be encrypted, only the owner of that folder could decrypt those files, and therefore would be solely responsible for the content. @ Mattia DL I agree with you that could begin to use other tools to communicate. could be a gmail group or a G+ community. I created a community on G+, everybody can join to this on https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/111676969507736751272 (is a public group, and is called P2PDropSync because i don't have any idea about the name ). Regards
  5. Nice!! @Mattia DL and @Segator. I know just a bit about encryption. Anyway, the bittorrent sync API has a method to do the file encryption, and comunication encryption, so it can save us a lot of work! . I am not a expert developer (actually I'm a sysadmin ), but i have some experience coding on python (7 years), and there is a python module for this API, and also Trible is written on python ...so i'm investigating a little about it and i would like to start a project. Would be interesting if we can join efforts and desing and develop a file sync descentralized tool, based on bittorrent. Regards
  6. I have been thinking about that too!! i would like to join you. I have been thinking on a big sync service, like dropbox, but using a decentralized infraestructure like Tribler, and totally free... i mean, a service where you can donate space on your computer to the comunity, and use space donate for other to sync the files, for example, to use 1 GB of cloud space, donate 4Gb of your disk (this can fix the offline problem on sincronization process, because the sync files will be replicated on a lot of machines). Obiously, the files must be encrypted on the others machines. Regards, Maximiliano. PD: I know, my english is ugly
