I've read reports to the effect that GBDE is vulnerable to online dictionary attacks unless two-factor authentication is used. The only such report I can find now is this discussion of NetBSD's CGD, where its author contrasts it with GBDE:
http://www.onlamp.com/lpt/a/6384 Is this still the case? Are there any other security concerns related to GBDE's implementation that you might mention? How well does GELI stack up against GBDE? I was surprised to read that OpenBSD's svnd is vulnerable to *offline* dictionary attacks. Any comments on that? -- CCD CopyWrite Chad Perrin [ http://ccd.apotheon.org ] Sen.
