Can you contact me (on or off list) regarding how you do this and what
limited shell technique or software you use, please?
I'm interested in doing a similar thing - creating a user account that
only allows upload of files, but encrypted in transit (so SCP / rsync
over ssh / SFTP / etc.) - without compromising security of the server
as a whole.
In fact, if anyone has thoughts or suggestions on this, I'd be
interested in hearing about them. Currently I'm leaning towards a chroot
per user account, but if there's a better way I'm all ears. (And setting
up a chroot that supports rsync is a PITA.)
