Key features:

  • Works as a virtual drive on you computer. You can access and modify all the data stored in Parsec with your regular softwares just like you would on your local hard-drive.

  • Never lose any data. Encrypted data are synchronized with the remote server that never destroys anything, hence you can browse data history and recover from any point in time.

  • Client-side cryptographic security. Data and metadata are only visible by you and the ones you choose to share with.

  • Cryptographic signature. Each modification is signed by it author making trivial to identify modifications.

  • Simplified enrollment. New user enrollment is simple as sharing a link and a token code.

  • Simple to host. Parsec server only requires a PostgreSQL DB and Amazon S3 or OpenStack Swift object storage.

Overview

Parsec is divided between a client (responsible for expose data to the user and provide an encryption layer) and a server (storing the encrypted data and notifying clients about other users activity such as data modification or new sharing).
