comment Is this a sensible cryptographic protocol intending to reduce the impact of compromised security?
@D.W. If the system is only ever intended to be accessed by limited IP addresses then any "foreign" IP addresses could be identified surely? Can you be more specific as to how this assumption is not valid?

comment Is this a sensible cryptographic protocol intending to reduce the impact of compromised security?
@D.W. I disagree - my question is about if there are any fundamental flaws with this cryptographic protocol as a principle. IT Security is much more about actual applications of protocols.

comment Is this a sensible cryptographic protocol intending to reduce the impact of compromised security?
Thanks for the response: The assumption that the compromise wouldn't be permanent is made due to monitoring of all network traffic. Anything un-expected would be investigated, so logging and transmitting by a third party would never be kept up for very long. Privilege Separation is probably worth me looking into, but only using client side crypto is not, as we are talking terabyte datasets and huge numbers of distributed nodes doing the analysis.
