Get whatever removable storage media palm supports and
attach one to your car keys or something.
Share split the key so there are 3 parts and you need any
two to get the key.
Keep one part on the palm, one on the storage media and one
on the desktop.
That way you can use 1 key for everyting (no seperate pair)
but if any one thing is stolen you can still get to your
key and the theif cannot.
This and a secure (and preferably different) passphrase on
each part of the share split key will make the key secure
enough for you (assuming you don't encrypt top secret
intelegence reports for a major government)
| What is the best way to deal with the potential for
| theft/loss of a palmtop containing a private PGP key? For
| example, I am considering creating a separate key pair
| for use on my Palm. However, it is kind of a pain to deal
| with two separate keys since I like to access my data on
| both my Palm and my PC. I know I can keep a copy of the
| key on both devices but am curious if there is some
| better alternative that might not require the use of two
| separate private keys while still maintaining the
| usefulness of the PGP systems and without requiring the
| creation of a new private key if the Palm is stolen/lost
| with the private key onboard.
| I am considering adding PGP to my Palm but am concerned
| about the potential loss of the my private key.
