Re: Bug#673071: ITP: vodstok -- Voluntary Distributed Storage Kit

Hi again,

I must clarify my very own point.

vodstok is actually using CBC, but for small independent chunks, which
means it has more or less the same vulnerabilities as ECB. I was
actually mentioning the possibility to encrypt the whole file using CBC
before splitting it. Of course, because chunks are downloaded in random
order, this is fine only for small files (the whole thing has to be
downloaded before decryption).
