Intersting article in the Washington Post about how the
Secret Service breaks encryption on computers "obtained"
in federal seizures:

"DNA Key to Decoding Human Factor"
"Secret Service's Distributed Computing Project Aimed
at Decoding Encrypted Evidence"

"By Brian Krebs"
"washingtonpost.com Staff Writer"
"Monday, March 28, 2005; 6:48 AM"

"For law enforcement officials charged with busting
sophisticated financial crime and hacker rings, making
arrests and seizing computers used in the criminal
activity is often the easy part."
