I saw someone talking about a lack of cloud storage options by Privacy Guides and came upon Icedrive.
Again, I’m just a layperson. If anyone wants to do some proper digging on Icedrive, it’d be appreciated if you could add your insight here.
Some general privacy and security things it offers/mentions:
- uses twofish encryption algorithm
- client-sided encryption
- encrypts file itself + file name
- in-transit encryption using HTTPS
One thing I consider a red flag for Icedrive is the fact that they shit on AES due to conspiracy (in this specific quote)
Most - if not all, encrypted cloud storage services use the AES algorithm - The encryption algorithm endorsed and promoted by surveillance agencies. If you wanted to lose weight, would you get diet advice from McDonalds?
And calls twofish “bulletproof”
Icedrive is the only encrypted cloud storage solution to use the bulletproof twofish algorithm. Widely accepted by cryptographers as a more secure solution than AES/Rijndael.
They also use quotes from prominent figures praising privacy and security in a very general way; perhaps in an attempt to make it seem like the quotes are referring to the service itself? perhaps to merely educate viewers? I don’t know their intention, but it could be argued as irresponsible marketing.
