Ok, but then all is ok. The web app does not have to reside on the box 
backup server.
It will connect same way as the box backup client. So, no client key needs 
to be stored
on the remote webserver.

Hmmm... that does sound a bit difficult with box backup right now (since I 
think not all file attributes are saved, but I may still be wrong)...
