Jump to: navigation, search
Tahoe-LAFS is a Free and Open cloud storage system. It distributes your data across multiple servers. Even if some of the servers fail or are taken over by an attacker, the entire filesystem continues to function correctly, preserving your privacy and security. - tahoe-lafs.org

There are occassionally Tahoe-LAFS meetups at Noisebridge. Check the discuss mailing list archives to see if there is one soon.

Onion Grid[edit]

Some Noisebridge people operate parts of the Onion Grid, a LAFS grid using Tor Hidden services.

Note that Tahoe clients have a persistent identity, so your interactions with servers are not remotely unlinkable at this time. (fixme: link to the trac ticket about this)

Here is a config to connect a client to the Onion Grid (using the "usewithtor" command to start Tahoe):

nickname = 
web.port = tcp:3456:interface=
web.static = public_html
tub.port = 4456:interface=
tub.location = localhost:4456

# Which services should this client connect to?
introducer.furl = pb://ifwpslh5f4jx2s3tzkkj4cyymrcxcunz@bvkb2rnvjbep4sjz.onion:58086/introducer

# encoding parameters:
shares.needed = 2
shares.happy = 4
shares.total = 5
# (this means 5 shares on at least 4 servers, any two of which can recover your data)

# Shall this node provide storage service?
enabled = false

FIXME: write instructions here for configuring a hidden service to be an Onion Grid storage node.
