i am going to be storing a windows xp sp3 based tower for a period of months while travelling. while the tower will be relatively secure, i'm unfamiliar with newer password cracking techniques, as i've never had to implement them. all sensative data on the machine is encrypted using fips algorithms on ntfs drive. i am hoping some of you can give me some tips to guard against a brute force attack against this machine. although it might sound a bit odd, this machine was the first i ever built from the ground up, per se. it's kind of serves as a time capsule. although i'm aware of the fact that brute force attacks are not 100% preventable, i'd like to make it as difficult as possible. i have no experience with hacking myself, although i should, to prevent it from happening. any advise would be helpful.
