Thank you for this post.  I will try that.  Although I have never had any sort of problem with my wallet.

I buy and sell GPUs, most 5850s and 7970s.

Security Does Not Means That We are going to Start a Fake Currency Like Dollar or Euro. I think the Only solution is to use gold currency!

Thanks for the guide, but why not use Tails live CD?

Yeah...

Quote
Tails is a live CD or live USB that aims at preserving your privacy and anonymity.
It helps you to:
  • use the Internet anonymously almost anywhere you go and on any computer:
all connections to the Internet are forced to go through the Tor network;
  • leave no trace on the computer you're using unless you ask it explicitly;
  • use state-of-the-art cryptographic tools to encrypt your files, email and instant messaging.
https://tails.boum.org/

Other features of TAILS include wiping RAM on exit to ensure nothing survives.
TAILS funnels all traffic through TOR, while a standard install of TOR only funnels a couple of ports (80 for one).

Another strong option for a secure OS is Fortress linux.

Just wanted to say "Thank you" for taking the time to make this.
As you've pointed out, it's no means 100% but every bit helps.

I'm going to implement this type of system.

How about you just restart your system into USB, have your bitcoin client with wallet on it, run the client to complete transactions, shutdown.
Put your ("savings account") USB into safe, 15 ft underground somewhere. Secure the area with 12 wolfdogs :-)

Create two live USB sticks, one for "checking" and one for "savings" accounts (wallets).

You can duplicate/encrypt sticks if you like; on clean, no network machines.

Very nice, aiwk171.

Does anyone have any thoughts on saving the wallet.dat (and some instructions) to the bootable Ubuntu flash drive...wouldn't that make it easier if you die (or otherwise had to suddenly rely on someone else)?

It also strikes me as cleaner that way.

i think the risks of the diying the USB stick or cd become scratched are the same is became hacked... As for me I have 4 faulty USB sticks last year. I think that's not good enough for the wallet purposes. As for me I keep my wallet unsecured onto the secured with SHA256 drive. This virtual drive is presented as a file on the physical disk. Most drive crypting software could do that, for example BestCrypt could, so I use it for years before, it bugless. Next you must do some regular backup procedures or upload crypted virtual drive container onto your google account - that's all. So you dont need to reebot, you dont need another PC... and so on. Meybe that's better heh?
