comment Is password authentication worse that signed messaging if done over SSL?
"Therefore the server learns the password." Can't the password be hashed by the client, instead of by the server?

Think about encrypting passwords exchange then. And generate strong passwords as well.

comment How is distributed computing security ensured?
I understand that my question might be a bit too broad. I will try to refine it. However I have absolutely no idea of how this is possible and I am pretty stunned that distributed computing with "untrusted machines" works. So I'm looking for an answer that could ease my amazement. Maybe a concrete example?

comment Is it a good idea to have a “master” password?
Theses links only shows me that I am not the only one who have had this idea (which is not a big surprise). But I don't see how it answers my question.

You're absolutely right. That's also why I (or at least try to) only run free software my computer.

comment Why are hash functions one way? If I know the algorithm, why can't I calculate the input from it?
Frugally: x² = 25, what is x ?

comment Are passwords stored in memory safe?
@OmarKohl That's what I did for my script. I first ask the password to unlock the keyring. Then I encrypt a random session password I send to the remote computer. And once I'm sure it received the new password I overwrite the password of the keyring. If it doesn't really solve the problem, it limits the time when the actual persistent password is stored in memory.

"virtual machines and cloud computing cannot be ultimately safe". I've always been skeptical about cloud computing.

Thank you for this concise explanation for both Windows and GNU/Linux (I guess this values for other Unix systems as well).
