Syncthing–Open Source File Syncing

Syncthing is an open source alternative to things like Dropbox or Google Drive for syncing files to multiple devices (including mobile…well, at least Android) across the Internet.

Syncthing replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized. Your data is your data alone and¬†you¬†deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it’s transmitted over the Internet.

. . .

  • Private. None of your data is ever stored anywhere else other than on your computers. There is no central server that might be compromised, legally or illegally.
  • Encrypted. All communication is secured using TLS. The encryption used includes perfect forward secrecy to prevent any eavesdropper from ever gaining access to your data.
  • Authenticated. Every node is identified by a strong cryptographic certificate. Only nodes you have explicitly allowed can connect to your cluster.
