None of my keys are on my laptop, nor is any
information I would want to conceal.  All
my keys are on removable media, one of which
is carried in a small pocket case, along with
my house and car keys. (How many bits are
there is a house key?).

However it would be useful if the keys were
themselves password protected, as is the case
with PuTTy.  On the other hand, I doubt that
this password protects against a serious attack.
