I've skimmed the judgment. It's a convoluted case. He asserted his Fifth Amendment rights at some point, but failed to do so again at his contempt of court hearing. When he was held in contempt, he appealed and this time he again asserted his Fifth Amendment privilege. But the court that was hearing his appeal of the contempt of court ruling couldn't weigh its ruling based on the circumstances of his original, criminal case
Seems like encryption systems need to have two passwords; one that decrypts the volume and another that wipes the keys and images a fresh filesystem. When they compel you to enter your password, you enter the "destroy code."
Sure, you could be charged with tampering with evidence if they realized what you'd done. But maybe that would be preferable to indefinite incarceration for contempt of court.
Serious question (maybe the wrong place to ask it): What is Samsung Pay?
I have a Galaxy S7 but one of my main problems with it is that it's piled with so much crap that I don't know how to use (or turn off). My assumption was that Samsung Pay was just another of Samsung's attempts to do something that some other thing (like Android Pay) already does, but in its own, Samsung-y way. So I've pretty much ignored it. Now I seem to be hearing that Samsung Pay even works if the checkout terminal doesn't have NFC? If true, that's kind of cool, but how's that work?
