Creates redundant backups on encrypted ZFS pools

zogftw makes using multiple geli-encrypted single-vdev ZFS pools for backups more convenient, mainly by automating creation, import and export of such pools and by synchronizing datasets without the user having to manually specify the names of the snapshots that should be sent.

geli passphrases can be stored gpg-encrypted which allows importing several pools in a row without having to specify each passphrase manually.

zogftw is extendable in shell. It can be sourced from other shell scripts or interactive shells.
