comment What's the difference between SSL, TLS, and HTTPS?
If TLS and SSL are essentially the same thing, how come when setting up an e-mail account in Outlook the encryption options are SSL or TLS?

@Aron how is 3ROT13 better than ROT13? Or are you making a joke?

I guess that's what I don't get, how is doing "iterations" different that what I described, for example applying AES twice?

comment Encrypting files on Google Drive
You guys seem to be missing the point. I don't want to have to trust google or the library computers. @deed02392 you say I shouldn't have an untrusted school computer read sensitive data, that's different. I know when I upload a file to google drive it's being stored on their servers. When I use a USB device with my files on it, likely no data gets copied to the schools servers (it's not like the library computers keep copies of all data on all removable media inserted in them; I mean it is possibly but unlikely, you know google drive is keeping your files).

comment Google Account: implications of using application-specific passwords
My problem is that this proves 2-step verification is safe, even with 100 application specific passwords BUT one could just as easily use a strong normal password (without 2-step verification) so in this sense isn't 2-step verification a waste of time and resources?
