I'm going to set up a wallet on my raspberry pi. It's portable and it's running Linux, which I hear is safer. Anyone confirm that?

For the Linux part, definitely it is better than Windows Cheesy (most of the virus are targeting to Windows users).

Brainwallet is a nice feature to have and unless someone can find a way to crack into people's brains, then it should be secure.

Not secure at all if you use simple words like "baseball" or "password".

Why not just adapt a 'paper wallet'. Encrypt it in a puzzle. I'm thinking of having my key engraved on to some puzzle pieces, mixing it up and then locking it in a safe. I don't have a huge amount of coin at the moment but it's safe all the same. Nobody will know what it means at the moment even if they do decipher it.

一个linux发行版,一切你可能需要来得不够快。 就好如果很小,基本上是一个向导,用户完成所有必需的步骤走到安全的钱包。 如果我有时间我就会恢复正常。

它仍然会100%安全吗? 什么是恶意软件的当前状态驻留在BIOS ? 我知道这是什么真是酷毙了从前。 我认为,机器开始引导OSs,安全事后运行持续从同一媒体杀一些。如果公元前起飞,我们会看到一个回到那些日子吗?

Funny idea - but if one gets the puzzle out of the safe he may be able to solve it.

Simply create an encrypted paper wallet. Print it out five times. Split the key into ten chunks and write one chunk on every print out. Then fold them and seal them with some kind of stamp. After this the five sealed printouts should be given to reliable persons with the instruction only to unseal them in case of your death or on your request. It is a good idea to have at least someone in the group who is not in good relationship to the others.

So then you have a perfect backup of the coins even for your heirs or in case you loose your wallet key or the password.

Newb question - is this still largely relevant? I'd like to link it on my site, but not if it's outdated and/or incorrect. I should mention that I have NOT read through all 126 pages of the thread Tongue

This is an awesome thread, thanks to OP! I'm reasonably paranoid and for some reason I had a total brain fart when it came to securing my coins...I went for wide distribution to reduce risk with any one wallet...this makes a lot more sense.

I don't think anyone could patent unplugging your Internet cable and booting up Live OS CDs. Cheesy

This is helpful to all newbies, and everyone should really take a look at it.
IMO, this thread should be made sticky.  Smiley

Is there any real safe way to store a wallet online? As in you encrypted it and placed it in some online storage service? I'm just wanting reliable off site backups.

Yes, you can store an encrypted wallet on Dropbox/Drive fairly securely.

I think it is okay if you encrypted it with a good long password with 7-Zip before uploading the file.
But you shouldn't keep an decrypted version on an online machine.

There're many cook books how to prepare secure wallets, usually with 20+ points about how to install bootable USB with Linux and Armory on USB token.

Or you can
