by Mark Woodstone - Tuesday, 16 March 2004.

Client perspective #2

After downloading the file we have just a quick decrypt process to do:

[cron@enberg]$ gpg -d mysql-dump-2004_34.txt.gz.gpg > mysql-dump-2004_34.txt.gz

This concludes a brief process of securely downloading a file from a remote location. If your client or server computers aren't decently patched and/or secured, the security of the download process is a bit irrelevant, but that is up to you to take care of.
