Subject: [Full-disclosure] RIPA powers being used
RIPA is finally being used to force people to hand over encryption keys...
"In the event that there was doubt that a suspect did not possess a key, he
said, it was up to the prosecution to demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt
that they could know the passphrase"
ever fat finger a password? ever forgot a password? ( I got a zip archive I
protected and cant unlock due to the fact I forgot the passphrase )
looks like prosecuters and judges will now be ASSUMING guilt or innocence
based on whaty they THINK MIGHT be true. ( if you created the passphrase you
must know it )
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
