comment Are there any instant messaging systems that offer resistance to traffic analysis?
You are incorrect. You asked about encrypting message contents. I'm asking about defeating traffic analysis. OtR does nothing against traffic analysis. Tor chat does, but Tor chat isn't being actively developed. I'm asking what others exist. Just fyi, this was obviously never an "opinion" question, I just chose my word poorly.

Removed the word opinion. It wasn't an 'opinion' question in the first place, obviously. <shrug>

Do you need another rule for the ethernet device too? Isn't this just covering the loopback device?

In theory, your private key has been written onto your hard drive gpg --edit-key "$key" and .. | openpgp2ssh "$key" > ~/.ssh/id_rsa, maybe those sectors were overwritten later, but maybe not. You should ideally have created the intermediate unencrypted keys in either a ramdisk or an encrypted partition. I'd expect ordinary activity like locatedb, syslog, browser cache, etc. should whip them out soonish, just say'n.
