@CodesInChaos I mean several months to a year, perhaps medium term would have been a better description, I said long term storage just to be clear I am not talking about data in transit.

@Iszi How would one "spoof" an IP in such a way so as to still get a response from the server?

comment Using computer random number generators to produce keys, it is secure?
Thanks for the reply, I am mostly concerned about the fact that if you are using a pseudo random number generator whether it is software or hardware based, given the same seed it will always produce the same series of numbers so in theory an attacker intimately familiar with the OS and hardware you are using could use that knowledge to better guess the keys. So I am wondering how likely is that to be an issue and what can be done to ameliorate it...
