    Hi,

    I am using Ce-Infosys free version. I've noticed that the longest
    password is about 20 chars so his "strenghtness" is from about 26 bits
    to about 130 bits. Please correct me if I am wrong at anything but:

    why use a 256 bit algorithm if the best usable password is less than
    130 bits?
    does e-identity token guarantee a strongest security?

    Mario.

    Isn't this the good place for the questions? Is better posting them to
    alt.security.scramdisk?
