    Is there such a thing as 8192 bit encryption and would it take a very long time even for the most powerful supercomputer to crack?

    GPG is what you're looking for. It's fairly good, as far as I know. It does support 4096-bit encryption. There are graphical interfaces available, but I use Linux so I really can't recommend any good ones for Windows. Do a little research:

    If you want to be safe dont even think about such a ridicolous encryption.

    Today you stack encryptions on top of each other.

    like my Netbook
    1. AES 256bit
    2. Blowfish 256bit
    3. DES 256bit

    And take some nice long password.

    And there you go

    a 25 charactor long password is pretty secure and not possible to crack with our newest systems.

    If you need some programs to encrypt for free check out TrueCrypt :) it's open source and free.

    What are you hiding with that encryption, dead body?

    TrueCrypt is great, I used it in the past, whole USB device was encrypted, when you plug it in, you get a message, format drive. So if someone get a hold of your USB he will think it is a new USB with no data, that needs formatting.

    But USB died fro some reason after a while, painfully lost important data. KEEP ENCRYPTED COPY.

    @necro: Public/Private Key encryption has nothing to do with AES/DES/Blowfish hashing. Totally different things - like apples and milk.

    I never saw Public/Private Encryption with so much bit...
