Wallet - brute force send password


#1

Are there any measures to prevent brute forcing the send password on the wallet - thanks.

Using a secure password would suffice.

I don’t think it would suffice. There is so much computing power out here. Take one of those BTC mining setups for example how long will it take to crack a “good” 20 byte password like “-JcDQ2e&%L!NgsN0vuqR” ? Besides time is not really a limit if they have your Daedalus files as they no longer need access to your computer.

I think multi signature transactions that are being worked on is a good solution. But I would also like to see some encryption on files stored locally as the wallet isn’t secure if it can be copied so easily. Alternatively “bind” to a specific hardware configuration or utilize TPM module.
