Maybe i missed it but you don't talk at all about security of the FS
and i guess that this is a very important topic for a FS that
it's going to work over the internet and be connected to insecure

Eg: What if i want to share a file with you, but i don't
want anyone else on the cluster to be able to read or modify it?

La prueba más fehaciente de que existe vida inteligente en otros
