comment How does LastPass' grid multi-factor authentication work behind the scenes?
The nice thing about the Yubikey is that you can generate your own secret key and leave it unknown to the yubico servers if you wish. It probably wouldn't work with LastPass then... but at least then you know you've got the only copy of your key. To clone your key, someone has to know the secret key, plus the values of the internal counters. This is highly unlikely.

comment Suggested Steganography Program?
The purpose of steno is to mainly to conceal the message. The idea being that in an ideal world, and if done well, the message should be almost undetectable. In theory you'd trust in the hidden-ness of the message so much you wouldn't have to encrypt... However, this should not be thoroughly trusted to keep the data secret; there are detection methods, and will be more sophisticated techniques and tools for detecting stenography in the future. Given enough time, the message can potentially be discovered. In essence, steno can then be seen as a form of security by obscurity.
