Hm, I thought about something like GPG: You create a key and put the public key on your Freerunner. The Freerunner encrypts the data and sends it to the publish server.
If you need the data (in case of a stolen/lost device, what ever) you download the data and decrypt it on your desktop with your private key.
OK, applications like "friends next to you" won't work...
