If a user has root access to your host then nothing is going to be completely secure on that

The encryption key could potentially be read from memory or the resulting decrypted repository
contents from memory.

If you don't trust your root users then you've got bigger problems regarding the storage of
contents on that host.

Subject: Protected/secure SVN


I would like to set up SVN to store confidential documents.
I have secured the pipe communication with HTTPS/SSL.  To avoid unauthorized users (even with
root access) accessing documents from within the server, I would like to protect the SVN linux
folder/files with encryption.

Are there any ways to secure the SVN using protected folders or encryption? So only authorized
users can access these confidential documents.

Thanks in advance for your helps.
