a RESTful web service which allows for the secure storage of users' documents.

Grendel is a RESTful web service which allows for the secure storage of users' documents. When a Grendel user is created, an OpenPGP keyset (a master key for signing/verifying and a sub key for encrypting/decrypting) is generated. When the user stores a document, the document is signed with the user's master key and encrypted with their sub key. Other users can be granted read-only access to these documents. For instance, if a web service stores documents securely for users, a user might grant the service administrators temporary shared access to their documents for support purposes, or may grant permanent access to another user for sharing purposes.
