  1. As far as i am concerned, the current encryption seems pointless, though in practical terms, even it is unlikely to be broken. I certainly wouldn't see any point in using it for a whole notebook when better levels of security are available. Ideally, we'll get this feature, it will use at least 256 bit encryption, and it will be zero knowledge. The NSA didn’t weaken a crypto standard. Rather, it put a backdoor inside the standard. There’s an important difference. As a consequence, if you use Dual_EC_DRBG, you’re still well-protected if the adversary you’re defending against isn’t the NSA. But if it is, you’re pretty much stuffed. http://grahamcluley.com/2013/09/nsa-cheated-cryptography/ You may find this interesting. I interpret this to mean all known forms of encryption can be and are being subverted by the NSA. Perhaps there are algorithms in a tool like TrueCrypt that don't use the Dual_EC_DRBG standard, but you'd have to do some research to find out.
