For people having problems with truecrypt I would also recommend

Bestcrypt volume encryption:
http://www.jetico.com/encryption-bestcrypt-volume-encryption/

Its not free but they take alot care about your data, I dont notice any slowdowns while using it and they let you create a rescue disc that allows you to get your data back in case of an operating system that refuses to boot Smiley

Interesting Thoughts.
My question is how far away is a single click secure wallet and back up solution.. Is there any body developing?
Thanks

I use a TrueCrypt container and just open it, when i need to check my balance or check, if i received new earnings Smiley
but I guess the best method is to use linux, because as far as i know, no wallet trojans had been developed on linux.

really appreciate this thread - especially the OP's analogy that the wallet.dat is more like a key than a wallet.  Finally put it into a perspective that makes more sense to me. 

thanks!

I recently read that the developers of the bitcoin client are planning on adding a wallet encryption feature to version 0.4 of the client. Hopefully this will happen within the next few months.

...wallet encryption feature to version 0.4 of the client...
There is no such thing as single click security. Encrypted wallet keys should help, but this is a tit for tat battle. Key loggers come to mind.

Wallet encryption is certainly the first step in the right direction to make it harder to steal someone's wallet. But as long as computers need to read the wallet file, there can't be 100% security, there will always be way to steal. But at least it will not be as easy as picking up a dime from the floor  Wink

Encryption might be bad in that it offers another way to "lose" your bitcoins by forgetting your encryption passphrase. That's not good for the monetary circulation of bitcoins in the long run, since more and more of them will simply get inaccessible and no more new bitcoins will be produced to replace them. There is also no way to detect how many bitcoins are no longer accessible by their "owners". At least this should make accessible bitcoins more valuable Roll Eyes

I'm a newbie - please feed me: 1moykyjWULbZSaLVQpeoMxx6fyCCdc3Mt - Thanks! Smiley

MyBitcoin.com, and online wallet service, has its ups and downs, btw.

Sometime, it's down for maintenance when I really need to get in there and send a payment. Sometimes coins get lost in "the void," never to be heard from again.

Sometimes, a few of those lost coins end up in my online wallet. (0.26 so far)  There's no way for me to know where they come from. They're mine now. But maybe when I lose coins to the void, they'll even the score, no?

Just so understand this, if I choose to...

Boot from ubuntu live cd
Install bitcoin
<at this point does the client need to be on the Internet to register the bitcoin address with the bitcoin network>

Thanks all

I just simply use an offline computer, with a usb-stick.

It's important to remember that usb-sticks and harddrives can and will crash (eventually). Keeping multiple wallets are ideal.

That's really not a bad system.  Simply keeping your device offline is a good way to protect it from remote intrusion.  Although don't you need to put that machine online to transfer coin from the account?

I just heard about the bitcoin android app though, makes me think a old android phone with no service plan (so offline) might mike a good mobile wallet.  Of course assuming you have a wifi connection wherever you need to spend anything, you'd also need to use whatever wifi connection they have, and you really can't trust public wifi.

So, how secure are the "wallets" that TradeHill, Mt.Gox and other trading sites use?

If their servers crash - like if my laptop HD crashes where my wallet is - does that mean bye2 to all them BTCs?
