this is bullshit
most people have their ssh-key on a usb-stick

normally a ssh-key is protected by a password
this can be your 12-char password

if you put an non-proctected key on a stick this is really
your problem - per default it is requestet from ssh-keygen

the hughe difference is: while having the same password (for the key)
it can not be used directly for brute-force und you need the password
and at least one time access to the key file
