DOJ: want your data safe? get an iphone
A Justice Department official recently took the stage at the DFRWS computer forensics conference in Washington, D.C. and told attendees that the security in iOS is now so good that it has become a nightmare for law enforcement.
He had this to say:
“I can tell you from the Department of Justice perspective, if that drive is encrypted, you’re done,” Ovie Carroll, director of the cyber-crime lab for the CCIPS division of the Department of Justice, said earlier this month during his presentation at DFRWS. “When conducting criminal investigations, if you pull the power on a drive that is whole-disk encrypted you have lost any chance of recovering that data.”
