Encryption and the Borders

I mentioned TrueCrypt not long ago, because I rather expected this story, which is that no probable cause is needed to search on border entry.  This actually all began (from the pdf and associated stories) back on July 17th 2005, when a border patrol type instructed him to boot up his laptop so she could “see if it was functioning”.  In his Kodak Pictures and Memories they found incriminating evidence. 


Remember, TrueCrypt creates an invisible sector.  This guy wasn’t particularly sharp, evidently.  I’m probably going to print off the *.pdf file and share some key facts because I found them rather fascinating.  I picked up some facts I didn’t know, like the fact that a mobile home is much more due to search.
