Password Management - Cloud, Semi-Cloud, USB Drive, or Local

If you are comfortable with the cloud fully, then use LastPass to manage your passwords.

If you trust the cloud partially, then use KeePass or 1Password with its database files in your Dropbox location.

If you don't trust the cloud,use the combo of KeePass and  TrueCrypt and USB drive to have access to passwords wherever you are.

If you don't trust the cloud and you don't feel carrying a USB drive with your passwords even though they are double encrypted, then you can use a combination of KeePass and TrueCrypt on your local hard-drive. This option is very safe, but it does not allow you to have access to your passwords when you are on the road unless you carry the laptop with you.

You need to pick the one that fits you best. It may not be a password management tool that I listed above, but please pick a tool of your choice that has respectable encryption algorithms. This is much better than using the same password for multiple accounts on internet. 


Pick a tool that has some form of two-factor authentication. LastPass offers two factor authentication. KeePass and 1Password do not offer direct two-factor authentication. If you are really concerned, you can take care of it using the combination of KeePass and TrueCrypt to introduce two levels of security.

Congrats Sathya Nadella - Can you please make this possible...

Congratulations Sathya Nadella.

I think you are the right person for the job. Here is one of many items that many bloggers are adding on their wishlist and requesting from you to make it possible and to make it a reality:

** Windows Superleggera 1.0 and the devices that run it **

What is Windows Superleggera?

It is NOT the version of Windows that runs on Surface RT.
It is definitely NOT the full version of Windows that runs on Surface Pro and desktops.

It is a lightweight (superleggera) version of windows that is technically a proxy or a dumb terminal to a full version of Windows in the cloud.

Yes, I am going to make a reference to Chrome OS and Chromebook that had a very successful 2013.
Yes, we want a WindowsBook laptop that runs Windows Superleggera and connects to my full Microsoft World in the cloud where:

(1)
We could use a full version Windows with all the tools that developers use. I should be able to use somebody else's WindowBook and still do my .NET development that I would do from my own WindowsBook.

(2)
We could use a lightweight version of Windows that many consumers would utilize and that lightweight version of Windows in the cloud would run all the full Office applications, browsers, and any other standard tools that a business person, students, writers, journalists would typically use.

There is good news. You already have it at the Enterprise level:

Microsoft Virtualization Destkop Infrastructure (VDI).
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/enterprise/products-and-technologies/virtualization/operating-system/default.aspx

You can just make it possible for the regular consumers and while you are handling this on the software side, you can also stick to the company's "devices and services" strategy and build the WindowsBook devices that are just thin clients the same way a Chromebook is a thin client to the Google cloud.


Thank You.

Sincerely,
Almir Mustafic
