I like to generate a public-private key pair that is seeded from a string. So having the string and the generation algorithm is enough to recreate the keys. I want to do this because I can then combine a password (that I'll memorize), with a long, secret (randomly generated) text file (that I'll store securely), and generate a key pair. I'll then delete the key pair after each usage and regenerate them when needed. Thus, for the keys to be compromised, someone would need both the long text file, and the password in my head. (Or they need to intercept the key in the narrow intervals that it exists.) This seems safer to me than just storing the keys securely, where anyone with physical access to the keys can use them.
PS: I am obviously confident in not forgetting the password.
There is a similar question, but it's old and doesn't have a useful answer.
