Well, you would encrypt every file before you upload it with a local
key. Sounds simple, is probably doable for small files, becomes tricky
for larger files. You must permit uploads through the web interface and
I think it does not make too much sense because you loose almost all
features of the ownCloud web interface, such as viewing files, music etc.
