Continuing with SOCKS5, SSH, Public Key Pairs and fingerprints, Darren and Shannon use SSH to create a secure remotely mounted network filesystem with implementations in both Windows and Linux. Using the SSHFS utility we’re able to mount a remote filesystem. Since we already have a secure tunnel to our server over SSH, which we’ve been thus far using as a SOCKS5 proxy, we’re now able to store files securely online with the same mechanism. Using FUSE, or File System in User Space, we’re able to achieve this without the need to load kernel modules — a process which would require superuser privileges.
