US Judge Rules Defendant Can Be Forced To Decrypt Hard Drive

paranode Re:no 5th? (1047 comments)

Problem is, forensics people are smart too. They know about all of this software and they have software of their own. Powerful forensics software the average computer enthusiast has never seen or heard of. There is a fair chance that they will investigate all of that freespace for patterns and can probably tell if it looks like a hidden encrypted volume versus remnants of overwritten files.

A Law to Spy Back on Government Surveillance Cameras?

paranode In the vein of reverse monitoring (229 comments)

I think that every cop car should be required to have a tape that is rolling whenever they pull someone over. I think they should have the detected speed displayed on said camera as well. This way no cop can lie about what they are pulling you over for and they can't get a conviction if the evidence is not present. Some jurisdictions have this but I don't think it's required for the most part. I would even take it so far as to say every cop should have a recording device on his person somewhere at all times to verify the authenticity of his story. They work for us and if they want surveillance we should make it work to OUR benefit also.
