Which is precisly why i always envyid that windoze partition encryption thingy, cant remember the name now, but it provides 2 keys, one will open the (actual) container and another one will open another encrypted container with all legal and perfectly harmless files. That way they cannot crack down on you for destruction of evidence (what second password ? häh? no idea what you mean!). But afaik theres is no such thing on any of the BSD systems. Which is sad, because -as you point out pretty precisely - it refutes most of the points file/HD encryption could be useful for - They will just order you to give them the PW as soon as they find an encrypted Partition/File.


In most western legal systems you are not enforced to participate in gathering evidence against yourself. Though it could be enforced that you are not allowed to alter current situation which can influence evidence against you. In short with a warrant they may be allowed to search your home and take your computer as evidence but they may not enforce you to tell them your pass phrase, that contradicts with the "You have the right to remain silent" thing :-)
