I like bitaddress.org's functionalities, but feel never comfortable to run a wallet generating software on a web browser. How can we 100% sure the generated key pair is not uploaded somewhere/sometime?

I think bitaddress.org is legit and reasonably trustful, but in the case of producing cold wallet, strong caution should be employed and it is better we can have a offline version of this cool software to use for cold wallet purposes.

You can just download the whole thing to your computer, then turn off internet connection and safely create your paperwallet.

I may be a little paranoid, I would create a virutal marchine and run it in virtual, with host offline. Then delete the whole virutal marchine after get the cold wallet.

Hehe,

maybe too paranoid?

I saved the code, checked sha sum. Then boot a machine without internet connection from a linux live cd, generate and print keys, and shut everything down. I wish the ammount of coins involved justifiied such paranoia.

Bingo! Yes, a live cd is definitely a great option to make sure the system is not compromised.
