Hello everyone,

Is there a possibility or standard way to encrypt/secure rosbags? I want to record camera images, which cannot be viewed unless I provide a password or reverse the encryption. I could do this manually with gpg, but maybe there is a more elegant way?

Best Regards L

Quick comment: rosbag --help lists rosbag encrypt and rosbag decrypt. I don't believe there is support for on-the-fly encryption (ie: while recording).

Thank you for your answer. It seems that the rosbag encyption defaults to using GPG keys, which would not be viable for my application purpose. I will continue to look into rosbag encrypt.
