SecretSync – Client-side encryption for Dropbox

Dropbox takes every precaution to keep your data secure. They use SSL encryption to make sure that while you send your files to them, the network packets can’t be compromised. Once they receive your files, they store them encrypted on their servers. They also use internal policies to ensure that employees can’t access your files.

The difference is that SecretSync provides client-side encryption, while Dropbox provides encryption at the server. This just means that they’re not asking you to trust them, or anyone, with your data. Your computer encrypts your files first, before anyone else has a chance to access them.

SecretSync installs a tunnel folder that goes inside your Dropbox. Files are encrypted before being put in here. The tunnel folder is inside Dropbox to allow it to sync your encrypted files to your other devices.

Majority of State’s Fire Districts Failed to Meet Deadline Under Governor’s Property Tax Cap Law

More than 56 percent of New York’s 882 fire districts recently passed budgets without filing the required tax cap data with the Office of the State Comptroller, according to State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. The electronic filings were due by November 4. State law requires fire districts to file their proposed budget data for review by OSC prior to adoption of their annual budgets to ensure that the districts’ tax cap calculations are accurate.


Comptroller DiNapoli’s web page, “Real Property Tax Cap,” is available to help localities navigate the complexities of the property tax cap. State law restricts tax levy increases for local governments, most school districts and other smaller independent entities, such as library, fire or water districts, to no more than 2 percent this year.
