From what I see, encryption is blowfish, which is good;
but they also keep your key, which is very bad.

This is the advantage of encfs: you keep your key, so the
repository is just a shell.

You need to create your own key : ;)


"custom key*/
Encryption key that is user-created (using the Passphrase or Generate options) and is used instead of the encryption key generated by the CrashPlan app. This encryption security option offers the greatest security because the custom key never leaves the source computer. It also greatly increases user responsibility; there is no way to recover a backup if the custom key is lost or forgotten. CrashPlan Customer Champions have no way to assist with custom key recovery./ "
