(not used to talking to nope on talk at .. thought _nop only resided on IRC)

Valid question...

What are current protocols at peoples' work sites now?

I know the Google forces SSH key pair changes frequently (monthly or
even weekly?), which makes sense.  It's not like forcing regular passwd
changes and users recycling passwds or writing them down as a forced bad

I assume people at least use different keys for work and personal.. and
use passwds with SSH and GPG/PGP?

And that 2048-bit keys aren't a hassle to your CPU compared to 1024...
