At rest, data is encrypted on the Server using server side encryption. Note: inherent to the concept of server side encryption, encryption keys will be present in memory of the Nextcloud server during the time a user is logged in and could be retrieved by a determined attacker. We take care to ensure keys are not stored unencrypted on permanent storage and at rest keys are encrypted using a strong cipher.
