    KeePass encryption good enough for storage on cloud?

    I have never stored my KeePass password database in the cloud. Is its encryption good enough to safely do so, http://keepass.info/help/base/security.html? I have attached a few files to a few entries but I'm not sure if the attachments are encrypted. It says names, notes, etc are encrypted but doesn't mention attachments. I've used KeePass for many years after having seen it recommended on Windows Secrets.

    Thanks,

    The KeePass database is created as plain text in memory - with some exceptions for passwords and other selected fields - and the entire file is encrypted before being saved to disk.
    To ensure your database is secure:
    1. Set "key transformation rounds" to a large value. File > Database Settings > Security, click the "1 second" link.
    2. Use a strong password that has a combination of characters.

    I store a copy of my database in the cloud and have no concerns that anyone will break it any time in the next century.

    cheers, Paul
