sship: Tool for Secure Shipment of Content
Convenient tools for exchanging files securely from within R. By
encrypting the content safe passage of files (shipment) can be provided by
common but insecure carriers such as ftp and email. Based on asymmetric
cryptography no management of shared secrets is needed to make a secure
shipment as long as authentic public keys are available. Public keys used
for secure shipments may also be obtained from external providers as part of
the overall process. Transportation of files will require that relevant
services such as ftp and email servers are available.
