Confidential Information on Dynalist


#1

I’ve been using Dynalist for over 2 years now after moving from Workflowy. I gotta say, I love it. It helps organize my life immensely. However, I have recently moved to a professional job which holds company confidentiality to the highest regard. For this reason, I cannot use Dynalist because of their lack of support for zero-knowledge encryption or client-size encryption. Speed Test Scrabble Word Finder

Is there anything in the pipeline to address this issue? I work in the R&D area and having confidential information on the platform would pose a problem, as it would be for a whole lot of other users, I’m guessing.

The simple truth is that if it’s in a cloud it is not secure. No matter how secure companies promise it is. Some of the biggest companies in the world have been hacked (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_data_breaches). There is some data that just needs to be offline. Personal and sensitive information should not be stored in the cloud.

Exact same problem here. Encryption or even offline functionality would be nice!

I suppose the right solution would involve client-side line by line encryption, although that would limit search capability?

I agree that client side encryption would be best. Search is local on the client I believe, so this wouldn’t be an issue. The api would then deliver encrypted data that needs to be unencrypted with a key, similar to the web client.
