They are storing both private and public keys on their servers... but the private key is encrypted with my password, which they don't know. Even though they have the private key, it's protected and they can't use it to decrypt my files. That's all good. Standard. The password of my password.
However, I still can't wrap my head around the password change issue. They claim that changing my password will "re-encrypt" my private key, leaving my files still locked by the same key.... How exactly does that make my files "unrecoverable" ?
Unless they are using my "encrypted private key" to lock my files in the first place... which by itself is stupid and defeats the purpose.
If they have my private key "re-encrypted" with a new password -- and assuming I know my new password -- I should still be able decrypt the private key and unlock the files.
If I understood this correctly, Lastpass.com uses the exact same approach and is managing fine allowing users to change their passwords.
Did anyone figure this out? I can't quite grasp what the issue is here.
I absolutely agree that you have the personal right to refuse a flu vaccine. Please, go along and exercise that right far away from patients who need medical care by professional people... you know... the ones that put their "beliefs" away from science.
Besides real time monitoring of traffic conditions, authorities will be able to integrate all kinds of services, such as traffic tickets, licensing and annual taxes, automatic toll charge, and much more. Benefits also include more security, since the system will make it harder for thieves to run far away with stolen vehicles, much less leave the country with one."
