Encrypting command-line client for Amazon Glacier.
Encrypting command-line client for [Amazon Glacier].
This command-line client lets you store files and directories in Amazon Glacier. All data is encrypted using GnuPG before being uploaded and no original filenames will be visible remotely.
AWS credentials with write access to Glacier
GnuPG public/private keypair
Python 3.5 or higher
Configure AWS credentials as described in the [Boto documentation]. The credentials should have write access to the Glacier vaults you plan to use. See the [example IAM policy](docs/iam-policy.example.json) for recommended permissions.
Create a keypair for icebox and make a note of the ID. Retrieval operations can take a long time, so you should make sure the keypair stays accessible, i.e. no password prompts blocking the operation.
Install icebox using pip (or [pipsi]):
pip3 install icebox
Create a new box
Create the box mybox for a Glacier vault called myvault like this:
icebox init mybox 0xMYKEYID glacier myvault
If your AWS credentials are not in the default profile, use the –profile option:
icebox init mybox 0xMYKEYID glacier myvault –profile icebox
Store data in a box
To store a file or directory, simply specify its location:
icebox put mybox cat-pictures/grumpy.jpg
Retrieve data from a box
There are no directories in boxes, so you just specify the original name of the source and a destination:
icebox get mybox grumpy.jpg -d ~/Desktop
Standard retrievals can take a long time. To perform an [Expedited][pricing] retrieval, use the Tier option:
icebox get mybox grumpy.jpg -d ~/Desktop -o Tier=Expedited
Retrieval operations are tracked by icebox, so you can interrupt a pending retrieval and request the same source again later.
Delete data from a box
To delete a stored file or directory, use its original name:
icebox delete mybox grumpy.jpg
List data in a box
To list the contents of a box:
icebox list mybox
Refresh data in a box
To update local box information with the current backend inventory:
icebox refresh mybox
Refresh operations are tracked by icebox, so you can interrupt a refresh and continue it later.
