what represents privacy/security for a logo?

just a quick one..

im trying to come up with a symbol to go inside a logo that represents privacy and security in terms of a software company specialising in email software...

so far i have come up with:

- a key
- a key hole
- a padlock
- a shield
- an envelope with a padlock on it

can anyone come up with any other symbols that represent privacy and security for a email software company?

so far none of the above really work, too unoriginal and obvious.....I want something different but still relevant to what the company does.

any ideas welcome!

Thought I'd give it a go as no one else has! It's actually quite hard! All I've come up with so far is a portcullis and one of those big heavy wooden doors with the iron bars across them in a sort of pointy shape. Sort of medieval castle doors. Can't describe! Will give it some more thought.....

nice ideas...

i like the thought of a sheriff badge but its a UK company and those badges are too american .

a portcullis is an ace idea, something like this one would be good as a symbol http://www.leedsne.co.uk/sites/19/images/portcullis.gif...

cheers eagle for that link...

and a guard dog could be good also as long as it doesnt scare customers away ....

hmmm thanks for the ideas, any more?

Yea sheriff badge is rather American. How about some sort of sign, such as 'no entry' or a 'STOP' sign...without making it look tackie may be hard.

You could adapt this. Perhaps put a computer instead of heart?
Hope this gives inspiration.

Careful though. If I recall correctly, certain shield designs in the UK must receive consent from the Heraldry Commission. Or something. ?...
