Re: Prosecutor cannot compel disclosure of encryption keys?

In response to what William L. Bahn <william@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> posted in

And how many "home grown" encryption algorithms have ever proven
to be secure? Just because you come up with an algorithm that
*you* can't break doesn't mean that a team of other people can't
break it quickly. You sure as heck wouldn't be the first.

Even people - and not amateurs - who have relied on OTPs have
come to grief. Hint - Venona.

And what about 'thumbscrew' decryption? Works quite well, but they might
have to export you to achieve it.
