Welcome to Tahoe-LAFS

Tahoe-LAFS (Least Authority File System) is a Free Software/Open Source decentralized data store. It distributes your filesystem across multiple servers, and even if some of the servers fail or are taken over by an attacker, the entire filesystem continues to work correctly and to preserve your privacy and security.

The one-page summary explains the unique properties of this system.
