ZeroBin Is an Encrypted PasteBin Alternative

ZeroBin is like the heavily armored sibling of PasteBin; You can still paste large chunks of text but that text is encrypted with client-side encryption.

PasteBin is great when you need to share snippets of code or log files, the only problem is the service is essentially wide open. Not such a big deal if you’re sharing your XBMC logs on the support forum to get a little help figuring out why your movie list won’t update, but less than idea if you’re sharing more sensitive information. ZeroBin steps in to fill that gap by offering client-side encryption where ZeroBin has no knowledge of the content of your shared text snippets. In addition you can set up the ZeroBin content to self destruct after a set amount of time.

Hit up the link below to take ZeroBin for a spin.

You can follow him on if you'd like.

    @sebsauvage It’s also mentoined on much other sites. (Such as http://www.tweakers.net which I check daily). But in any way, I love this!

    Nice app :) but I’m confused — doesn’t “client”-side encryption mean the info is encrypted on its way *to* the site? What’s “server”-side encryption if not the destination being encrypted as well? Does this mean that once the info is on the hard drives at Zero Bin it isn’t secure anymore?
