rsync-backup

rsync-backup automates the process of backing up multiple systems to one or more backup servers. It focuses on making the process secure. It encrypts the backup going across the wire, only ships changed data, runs the server as root to preserve permissions and ownership, keeps people from seeing each other's backups, and doesn't require the server to trust any files sent from the clients. It doesn't ship password files, key files, nor other sensitive files across the wire, but backs them up locally instead. Admins may use one key for everyone (backups named after the client IP) or allow named backups (when a machine may change IP or when multiple independant backups may need to be made from one machine).
