"blind" devices for high availability

I really love Syncthing. It’s replaced dropbox for me and I’m happy to be in control of my stuff again. However, sometimes I’m working on a device and all my other ones are offline. It’d be good to have something that’s always on (i’m thinking raspberry pi at home).

However, would there be a way to setup some “blind” device that you can sync to but can’t actually see (decrypt) the files? a private key could be shared between the already existing devices. The usecase I have in mind is setting up an EC2 instance.

There had been lots of discussion on this (on mobile atm, but search the forum and github for “encrypted device” and similar).

The opinion is definitely worth doing, and there was one third party effort which stalled, but noone’s done the work to completion yet.
