Re: Discussion about log retention

said by davegravy :

Take a page out of Mega's book - you store the logs, but your clients hold the keys.

Beyond logs needed for emergency situations, encrypt log data specific to each client with a password known only to the client. If law enforcement needs access to logs relating to your client, you have plausible deniability, and they are required to use courts to compel your client to decrypt the information.

Great idea.
Store each client log in a single text file per day per client.
Then have the client have the option to specify the number of days they want the log file(s) kept via a user set parameter on their MyWorld page. TSI's system then overwrites any files (35-pass Guttmann) older than the # of days set in the customer profile.

Bet you the normal number customers set == 0.
