Re: The ugly side of using disk encryption



John Ashcroft attempted to pass a law a few years ago that would have made "use of encryption" a felony that could be added to any other crime to get 3-5 years tacked on to the end of it. Fortunately the bill stalled and has never been brought back up. --

a little twist:

how about if you are found guilty and you were using encryption to
cover up misdeeds, tack on additional 10-15 years. DA can use that
additional 10-15 yr as a bargaining tool to get access to encrypted
data.
