1.1. Usage

1.2. 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, so it is best to run it in your Home zone, and failing that, in your Campus zone.

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