    Putting the passphrase on the command line is a bad idea for security, as it’s visible to all users in the same host, via the ps command. Better to set the environment variable first, then run the command. Better yet, put both in a shell script with permissions of 700.

    How would you compare duplicity to bacula? I have been struggling to get bacula runni g on my Ubuntu 14.04 server. After reading your post, I am willing to try to use duplicity to backup my CentOS 7 laptop to the server.

    Would it be better to use dedicated backup user instead of root for SSH connection? Or is root needed for some reason?
