This week we discuss computer forensics. Computer forensics is the discovery process necessary to gather data from an electronic device. Encryption has become so strong that it is virtually impossible for law enforcement to decrypt data. Law enforcement seeks methods to decrypt data that has been encrypted. It is much easier to acquire the password from the user or some other source than it is to try to guess a password. iOS and Android both have features which will “brick” a phone should too many attempts to guess the password occur. The question is why isn’t biometrics a safe method to encrypt data in the face of law enforcement efforts to acquire that password. Also, if you use a password that must be typed in, can law enforcement force you to enter the password so that they can read the data on a computing device?
Answer the question with a short paragraph, between 250 and 350 words. Brevity is a virtue. That is why you are limited to 350 words. If you can’t present your hypothesis in 350 words or less then it is too complicated. Remember that when you state a fact if you don’t provide a reference, it is not a fact but rather an opinion.
You can type your response in Word and use the word count button to see how many words you have typed. Do not include the references in your word count. No headings or title page, etc.
