    Talking 16384 bit encryption for SSH is cool.

    Just finished building my key. Thinking about doing another one, but this one took me nearly 5 days to build. It's slow to load, but it's so cool to use.

    So cool in what way? Being a complete waste of time? Encoding something with a key that big is a total waste.

    There is the theory of the moebius. A twist in the fabric of space where time becomes a loop.

    You could send your credit cards number in plain .txt format over the net without worrying!

    The biggest encryption key I've seen used in a standard format is 4096-bit. You would likely be replacing the server before a password cracker could crack it No need to go over that.

    Well, it wouldn't really be plain text if it was in an encrypted shell.

    I wouldn't advise doing that! One can easily capture and assemble into dialogs all packets transiting a subnet.
