    I thought even forcing defendant decrypting the data would be the same as forcing defendant to incriminate him/herself?

    Perhaps it's a matter of taste, but I prefer http://www.truecrypt.org/ over PGP any day. :confused:

    By the time they get the warrant to come in your front door the drive could be swimming in the ocean. :eek:Unless they intend to kick down the door, in that case my Glock could find some use. :rolleyes:

    Edit: It would seem that if there is dirt on a storage device, it should be kept to oneself and locked away in safe place. The woman in OPs referrenced article appears to have put her stuff out in the streets. Dumb***.
