comment Can RSA keys be swapped?
So if both d and e were enormously large then they could be interchanged, but most or all implementations use a small e.

comment Tor and regular browser side by side. Does that make sense?
But you should encrypt anyway.

comment What is a good practical (and sane) way to manage all your passwords for online sites?
@Matt: And my point is that just because you think you're so clever doesn't mean that your scheme isn't painfully obvious to the next guy just by looking at your exposed password. Using real security is so easy, why intentionally downgrade it?

@Les: I hope you don't use LinkedIn, otherwise there are a lot of people who already know your password scheme. You don't have to be Bill Gates for the contents of your bank account to be an attractive target.

comment Is howsecureismypassword.net safe to use?
The question is: should you be trusting some random stranger on the Internet about the security of where you're typing your password? How do you know he didn't write that site and wants to lull you into sending him all of your passwords?

Keep in mind Schneier's Law: "Anyone, from the most clueless amateur to the best cryptographer, can create an algorithm that he himself can't break."
