Not even that is true. You can always *access* the data. Depending
upon the type and complexity of the encryption, it may take a while to
decrypt, but once I have physical access, I have both the data and the
time to do just that. *Most* of the "encryption" schemes for things
like passwords that
several times the age of the universe is a while thoo.
used to be stored in plain text (until somebody pointed it out) are
fairly trivial and easily broken.
Even if they're not, I may be able to use the program itself to
decrypt the password and then capture it in plain text in memory.
you know you can use pretty strong encryption on Hd, right ?
Again, once you have physical access, it's game over, plain and simple.
