Suppose I wanted to send some files to a remote storage device and (reasonably) guarantee their security and I am wondering whether something like the following method would be suitable:

Encrypt a file using symmetric encryption, encrypt its key using a local RSA key-pair, then upload the filefiles over a secure channel like SSL.

An additional question is whether to create file digests for each of the encrypted files so that a file's integrity can be later verified, and how best to store those digests (presumably their security is also important to reduce the likelihood of people figuring out a file's content)?

Many thanks,

Cheers,

Geof.
