comment How to securely store data? / How to securely encrypt a file?
Given the scope, I suggest a chat or meta discussion on the topic first. There's a lot of good material in your answer, but I fear that it's all packed so tightly that it's difficult to find the relevant parts for any given problem.

comment How to securely store data? / How to securely encrypt a file?
I am voting to close as too broad because, seeing the answer, it's clear that there's just too much stuff to say on the topic. Besides, the answer to the question as written is “use an existing implementation such as dmcrypt, TrueCrypt, GPG, etc.”.
