Those who have nothing to hide ..
have definitely got something to fear now !
I think it is cool that amnesia is now illegal in the aftermath of Bliar's Britain.
I really LOVE the bit about making things intelligible for the plod, fancy that. They cant even understand what they write themselves, they just want to look good in the press. Now that DNA evidence has been show to be inconclusive and that finger print evidence has been similarly outed, they are just looking for a technology they may be able to use if they get someone clever enough to show them how. (I am presuming that anyone using encryption has some idea of what they are doing).
Wonder what they will do when faced with a full schematic of a processor. What happens with several people working on different parts of a project, and you cant call anyone else to explain the but they were working on, because you might expose the fact that you have a S49 notice.
Do you really think that someone with the IT skills to deal (even cope) with encryption and key management is working for the plod handing out parking tickets for twenty whatever thousand a year ?
So, more likely, they wont have a clue as to whether they are looking at a new, freshly installed and unformatted disk or the nefarious secrets of yet another ne'er do well. I mean, they can't even catch people when they know where they are !
Still, Truecrypt works fine, I tried it out on a spare disk, on a spare machine, which doubles as a test bed for whatever else I might get interested in. It is such a faff remembering the pass phrase, then again, I have nothing to fear because I hid everything !
Oh, BTW, at a recent file count (from a virus scan), I had close to 2,500,000 files on my PC. I havent a clue as to where they originated, they appear out of the ether every few Tuesdays.
Don't you just want to hark back to the days when ignorance was bliss ?
