About me

I operate in the realms of crossmedia design and cross-platform development, pushing design beyond communication. Besides that, I “play” with cryptographic algorithms.

comment SSTP data traffic when multiple client approach?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about cryptography as we handle it at Crypto.SE. The question might find a better home at Webmasters.SE.

@Aron …to paraphase the CIA… Actually, that's one of Kerckhoffs' principles (as described in a related Crypto.SE answer to “Why should I make my cipher public?”). ;)

By the way: How does your The saying about passwords is that if you can remember it, it's not complicated enough. comply with your …the single master password to decrypt the file is the only thing stored in your head.? To me, it seems as if you are contradicting yourself there. Maybe you might want to think about rephrasing part of your answer to fix its issues…

comment Security of carrying passwords on person
…You can carry both the software and the file on a USB stick instead of a piece of paper… Right, but you're forgetting that you also need a computer to run the software that accesses the password(s) on your USB stick. So you'll need to carry around that one too to have password access. Comparing that to a piece of paper which fits in a pocket as OP describes, your suggestion is too “heavy” from all perspectives. Besides that, I agree with @mikeazo – you didn't answer the question.
