The trick with Amazon S3 is getting end-to-end encryption working (so 
the data stored at Amazon is encrypted - not just encrypted over the 
pipe), while at the same time having the differential transfers remain 
efficient. If anyone has seen a good solution to this challenge, please 
post. A SecurityNow podcast from around December supposedly covered this 
topic, but I haven't listened to it yet.
