Yes, I understand and agree. There is no problem to implement this way and I will. Read any more some information in addition to the MAC is not so difficult.jinxdone wrote:What I described above is in a few simple steps:
- Gather machine based information
- Combine the information and run them through a hashing algorithm like sha1
- Use this generated string as the key for encrypting and decrypting the actual stored information using a two-way (symmetric) cipher like AES, Blowfish, Twofish or something similiar
This can not completely agree, although meanwhile there I not will give this option (but I can there give warning to ...). When the accident disk, so you will not be able to read the password. But if you have a backup file with the passwords (and, of course, XML configuration file), the problem will not restore the previous state on the new disk. Also, the upgrade of the machine will be easier to transfer all passwords at once, than the copy by hand.jinxdone wrote:Right. But then again it's a password to the user's own an email account, no point in protecting a password with another password IMO..
