Feds seek new ways to bypass encryption

http://j.mp/KtROAz  (CNET)

    It seems clear that law enforcement is now doing precisely that. "Our
    first step is grabbing the volatile memory," Van Burean said. He
    provided decryption help in the Albert "Segvec" Gonzalez prosecution,
    and the leaked HBGary e-mail files show he "went through a Responder
    Pro class about a year ago." Responder Pro is a "memory acquisition
    software utility" that claims to display "passwords in clear text."
    Cox, from the Justice Department's computer crime section, said "there
    are certain exploits you can use with peripheral devices that will
    allow you to get in."
