Simple Network Encrypting Backup Utility -- a system built on tar, sqlite, and ssh for managing (optionally encrypted) compressed deduplicated snapshot backups, supporting single and multiple host installations. License: GPLv3

Installation Instructions

Install the following two packages: On a backup server or single-host install -- snebu and snebu-client. On a client-only -- snebu.

Backend process snebu is installed owned by the user/group snebu, and is setuid / setgid to that user/group. The backend process is not a daemon, it is executed by snebu-client (either directly, or via ssh). Once installed, follow the instructions in the snebu-permissions(1) man page, and the examples in the quick start guide.
