Browser enables you to access a large number of online storage from your browser.

Filestash

Currently the Infinite Disk Browser is based on the Filestash.

Security

From Filestash website:

Credentials are stored in your browser via cookies that are protected by a few mechanisms:

  • cookies are http only
  • the data within your cookie is both encrypted and authenticated using state of the art cryptographic algorithms
  • various mechanism leveraging HTTP headers (HSTS, CSP, SameSite Cookie, X-XSS-Protection, X-Frame-Options, X-Content-Type-Options and X-Requested-With) to protect against an attacker trying to trick your browser into doing something nefarious
  • various other techniques which are left for the reader to discover by digging through the code

Nothing is kept server-side unless you use the share feature. In this scenario, Filestash keeps a persistent, encrypted version of your credentials.

Our Comment

Although Filestash server will not store your credentials, it does handle them and relevant data on a transaction basis.

Although Infinite Disk is running on Community Stations which is safer that running in the Cloud, it is best to keep any private or sensitive information away from this domain.

That is why the Browser button is coloured Red instead of Blue.

Filestash is also available as the Browser under Home Digital Hub (but it is a Blue button there since you have full control of the machine and the site it is running on).

To increase security of your Filestash instance, pick Disposable Nodes which destroys themselves within a short timeframe e.g. once a day.

Open Sourced File Browsers

There are MANY good open sourced file browsers, Infinite Disk users are spoiled for choice here.
