I have done it like this myself to secure the wallet :

I have encrypted the wallet with the build-in crypt funktions of the client,
then i stored the wallet.dat on an hidden AES256 encrypted Truecrypt drive.
From this drive i am making automated backups every day on an other truecrypt
drive on an different physical drive. And i am only using the bitcoin client and
doing transactions on a clean Windows XP virtual machine.

the only way to keep yourself 100% secure is to not even get involved with it.

It's hardly as if cash/banks are 100% secure either!

Does anyone know if it is possible to encrypt a paper bitcoin wallet with the keys printed out?

Just use the original client. Set up a 20-40 character long passphrase. Don't write it down anywhere. Encrypt drive. Make regular backups of your wallet. Voila. That's it!

Btw. this is the blind leading the blind thread in the newbie topic? Cheesy

thanks for the trick, sorry if someone has already answered (the thread is a bit too long for my eyes) but how would that be better than using armory ? Or maybe the guys from armory got inspired form this idea?

You could make a bootable USB with Sardu, have a Linux Distro liveCD on it,  use a truecrypt file on another USB and only load the wallet.dat from the truecrypt 'disk'.  Take it even further and encrypt your wallet ALONG with the encyrpted 'disk' from Truecrypt and your golden.

That's just my $.02

Offline wallets is a good idea! One friend of mine did so.
