This article caught my eye. One of the things that I gleaned from the
article is that it's obvious that law enforcement (at this level) does
not have the ability to brute-force crack PGP encrypted data. Instead,
the courts are attempting to force the surrender of the passphrase.
Apparently the issue has not yet been settled in the US. How are other
countries' courts handling this?
