comment Security of re-encryption with a list of pre-computed password based keys
Just to add to what I said before, the integrity of the data can always be checked to make sure it is correct, so the issue of it being modified is less of an issue as my worry that the content of the encrypted file is found.

Your description of the situation is 100% correct, I'll modify my question to be more clear as well. Using OpenPGP would definitely be good, but my question is more about security of the data when at rest, using either OpenPGP or the larger endeavor you mentioned. The data will be visible in this state and the server is not trusted while at rest, it is while active. The data is publicly modifiable while at rest. The dictionary attack is one thing, but can be combated as you said, but the other issues of the public state of the file are my main concern.
