    The article I linked to in a previous post is not about the "best" security but about "practical" security. For example, if VDr required a 12 character password I would never have joined. According...

    Thanks Nick. The "See Also" links at the bottom of that page are also interesting. I don't recommend trying the do-it-yourself Daguerrotypes. The process is dangerous.

    Brute force attacks try every possible combination of values. Use of symbols offers no additional protection against brute force. Use of symbols not on your keyboard makes typing very error prone.
