Hi guys,

Some of this is quite OT -- apologies in advance.

Do you have any suggestions as to what security measures can be
implemented in the following conditions:

1. key management
	- how, where to keep keyrings
	- how to backup (encrypt backup?)
	- would it be safer to make separate keys to be used for different
purposes (one for email and one for local file encryption, signing,
2. frequency of changing passphrases
	- in a user who accesses emails via net cafes (think keyloggers)

A link of good/reliable secure computing practices would be much appreciated.

Thanks much,
