phf went through that exercise recently. one of the guys went checking wikipedia (of course) etc.
mircea_popescu: heh

phf: unrelatedly i was wondering if gpg passwords are promisetronic. how do they even work? there's some symmetric encryption scheme used to encrypt the privkey, or can passwords be somehow integrated into rsa scheme?
