I'm more wary than that. My old Palm V had not just the usual protection, but the password utility encrypted (just triple DES) the file, and I also had a utility that would erase it if the wrong PIN is entered more than a few times. It wasn't bulletproof, but it would protect against all but a rubber hose
decryption or a determined and well heeled snoop.
Now here is an invention someone should make just for passwords: There is similar on ThinkGeek
, but I'm thinking of something in the form factor of the old Franklin Rex PDA
so it easily fits in a wallet or pocket.
The device would allow various levels of security. Some passwords can be synchronized between the computer and the password PDA. Others would only be able to be copied from the computer to the PDA, and not back. Of course, this can be combined with a Firefox add on for password management for low security website passwords, while not allowing the computer to see high security passwords. Of course, various means can be done for authenticating to the PDA. A fingerprint scanner is one way, but the best would be a PIN that if guessed too many times, would lock or erase itself. Of course, this could be sold in various case shapes and memory sizes to sell to whomever wants it.
