Is my backup of Keychain save?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I use Backup to store important files on my iDisk. There are several QuickPicks installed by default. Among others there's a QuckPick to backup Keychains. I am concerned about the security aspect of having this file on my iDisk. Is my Keychain encrypted and if so, how long (bits) is the encryption?

    It is encrypted, I have no idea what kind of encryption is used. furthermore, it doesn't backup to your public space. The only way someone could access it would be by getting your login information to .mac.

    Most security breaches aren't because somebody broke the encryption, they're because somebody allowed their password to get stolen because 1) it is easily guessable, or 2) The password was written down somewhere and discovered.
