"The earliest example in England is the Exeter puzzle jug, a fine example of medieval pottery in Britain, dating from about 1300 and made in Saintonge, Western France."Didn't know about the puzzle mugs, a fun party piece, I might order one now
Ya... They are super cool... It's like being authenticated to drink... Wrong passwd and the joke is on you... Literally.... I have always wanted one too... Just never ordered one... Some day!
Agree...... The vault private key attack approach would / could be different for everyone... No rules here... The QR could be anywhere literally... Printed and stuck under a couch, in a library book or tated your body.I was trying to think of ways to protect a lost wallet private key, although if it was also password encrypted , it would not matter so much if the wallet(paper or chip) was lost. I like the idea of a 2 tier wallet system, the pocket change might get lost but the main vault storage would need a different attack approach.
This is kinda crazy, but I have been thinking about it for a while... So here goes... When you first try (so I've heard) to patent something you get all your details down on paper, then mail it to yourself (snail mail)... When it returns in your mailbox the stamp is voided on a specific date, proving the date of your original idea. You keep it sealed, until you have to prove it's your idea, to someone in a court of law.....
Well what if you mailed your vault Private Key to a PO Box that you and only you have the key too?
Lets do the check:
Off device -- Yes
Off network -- Yes
Off cloud -- Yes
Power required -- No
Simple -- Yes
Off-site -- Yes
Safe from fire / water damage -- Better than at home... I think...
Only physical access -- Yes
Cheap -- Yes
Better than safety deposit box -- Depends which is a more trusted source for access
Overkill -- Maybe?
Anyway... I think the AWPM is good and we should move forward w/ a pilot... I'm not going it alone, because if the community doesn't support the idea or code for the long-haul... We are just wasting our time... Also, this wouldn't be a "fork" of the current wallet, but a new project with cherry picked classes from the existing wallet for QR, protocol and transactions... It's just too different to kludge it together...
Like this if you think we should proceed....
