Regarding signatures, it isn't part of my requirements now, but for the sake of argument let's say I wanted external auditors to be able to verify the authenticity of thr data - would signatures then become a good option?

Sorry about the notation - I just mean AES cipher in GCM mode using SHA256 hash :)

Why wouldn't the RSA option be appropriate? I realise it would be slower than either AE or HMAC, but I'm not too concerned about that (it would afterall only be signing a hash of each file)
