I am using TrueCrypt now, i made a filebased encrypted filesystem on my
usb-stick, that gets mounted as partition and i am using that to store
my gpg secret-keyring.
It's all working very well, i am only a little concerned about the
protection against bruteforce attacks - as TC uses symmetrically
encryption. Is it possible to specify a min password length (maybe
entropie) from that on the password can be considered 'safe' against

I think i gotta read/think a little more about the whole security issue
around it.
