Re: If I said the next thing a say will be a lie and the last thing I said was the truth
Kind of related. but this is how I deal with my encryption keys to remove the chance of being forced to reveal them
I have my encryption key on a USB device, and a copy in my encrypted volume. I mount my encrypted volume, and shred the USB drive (er, software shred, I'm not made of money).
When I need to unmount, I copy it back to the USB. So if anyone were to come knocking, force unmount or simply flicking the plug makes the volume inaccessible and I can't be compelled to reveal what I don't have.
I will admit this has bitten me in the arse...twice...through the stupidity of an adorably excitable dog and her ability to trip a power cable. But the price you pay for security and all
