The Department of Homeland Security’s civil rights watchdog has concluded that travelers along the nation’s borders may have their electronics seized and the contents of those devices examined for any reason whatsoever — all in the name of national security.

The DHS, which secures the nation’s border, in 2009 announced that it would conduct a “Civil Liberties Impact Assessment” of its suspicionless search-and-seizure policy pertaining to electronic devices “within 120 days.” More than three years later, the DHS office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties published a two-page executive summary of its findings.

“We also conclude that imposing a requirement that officers have reasonable suspicion in order to conduct a border search of an electronic device would be operationally harmful without concomitant civil rights/civil liberties benefits,” the executive summary said.

It would take them 2 quadrillion years to crack my encryption password.

It would be little more than an overly complex paper weight to them.

At best they might be able to retrieve some data leakage from ram but they had better be Johnny on the spot with that one...

Encryption software? Yeah, don't make me laugh!

1/ In order for encryption software to be licensed, it must have integrated back door functionality, registered & submitted to law enforcement. This since at least c.2000. You won't read about this anywhere, for obvious reasons.

2/ Even if the encryption algorithm is not registered, law enforcement has at its disposal purpose-made & extremely powerful decryption equipment that make hiding anything almost impossible.

This poses some interesting questions re: wikileaks 'insurance files' for example.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26402302


Linux, my friend. Complete open source with encryption as a built in option.. hard to hide a back door when you can see the "strings".

Encryption can be broken with bruteforce or this algorithm[1]...but that takes time(even with super computers). imagine if everyone encrypted their data, It would take DHS years to go through their stolen goods.

but encrypting doesn't fix the problem.... we have some cleaning to do here in America. lets just hope we can do it peaceful through the system before they start dropping hellfires on our heads(might already be too late).

What most of you smart asses fail to realize is that if your data is encrypted right there is the first red flag that you are hiding something and they will ask you politely for a password. If you refuse to give out the password you raise another red flag and more than likely your device will be confiscated.

When I worked in webdesign and internet language programming most of my income came from customers looking to remove back-doors and intentional security risks in the code of MANY freeware scripts of various programming languages. IMO it's not worth the risk, but some may not see it as such a risk.

If it can be encrypted, you can bet it can be decrypted when you're dealing with a budget as big as DHS, it's only a matter of time. Even if this were a surefire protection method, it's not feasible for most people or important data that must be protected but accessible at the same time. You also have the newer methods of pulling information from hard-drives magnetically, the data is basically pulled out without even activating or using a software based security systems. These systems are supposedly already operational and can be drove through neighborhoods(in cars/vans) sucking data from all hard-drives, flash-drives and possibly even CDs - we already know they're scanning and pulling all the data from network accessible devices. We're just starting to see the beginning of this kind of spying and technology with the cell phone scanners that can basically pull all data from a phone even if it has been deleted(as long as it was not copied over) and things like the handheld instant background scanners that run on fingerprints. The thing is the feds have a big head-start over all security software and other computer data security measures and a MUCh bigger budget, they had the internet long before we even knew what a computer was and were waging cyber-warfare much longer than all the security measures out there.

As far as encryption, it is a secondary concern at best, and the primary point of view should be that all electronic media that one uses and participates in is accessible, (and so much more), and that no one really has absolute constitutional rights anywhere,

Re: ENCRYPT YOUR SHIT NOW: DHS Watchdog OKs ‘Suspicionless’ Seizure of Electronic Devices Along Border (Affects all people within 100miles of border)
A few years ago, I read a similar article, but it included all land within 100 miles of a navigable waterway. That would reach far inland and would leave very little land unaffected by thugs who would do anything for a paycheck and the illusion on being on the "good" side.

A national strike appears to be the only non-violent option left.

If the border is a "Constitution free" zone, how can there be any legal law enforcement? Doesn't it make the border a free-for-all legally?

The Department of Homeland Security’s civil rights watchdog has concluded that travelers along the nation’s borders may have their electronics seized and the contents of those devices examined for any reason whatsoever — all in the name of national security.

The DHS, which secures the nation’s border, in 2009 announced that it would conduct a “Civil Liberties Impact Assessment” of its suspicionless search-and-seizure policy pertaining to electronic devices “within 120 days.” More than three years later, the DHS office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties published a two-page executive summary of its findings.

“We also conclude that imposing a requirement that officers have reasonable suspicion in order to conduct a border search of an electronic device would be operationally harmful without concomitant civil rights/civil liberties benefits,” the executive summary said.

 Quoting: Dr. Ben Schillen
There's no commercially available encryption DHS can't decrypt. Most security software comes with back-doors for this very reason, so access is easy for "authorities". The only way to be somewhat safe is a custom decryption methods, but even that is time limited on being pulled out.

TrueCrypt is opensource with no backdoors. The weak point with all encryption systems is the password. A weak password can be broken with a brute force attack. With a strong password, 128 bit encryption is unbreakable without thousands of years of computer time.

Since it is open source, the source code can be analyzed for back doors. None were found.
