Saw a job ad from the IRD looking for a Computer Forensics person:

http://www.seek.co.nz/job/computer-forensics-investigators/auckland-manukau-east-auckland/18330886/35/1/

The job ad may even inform people what  Computer Forensics tools they use, although I'm assuming they will be no match for truecrypt.

Damn it, it's in Auckland, otherwise I would've applied :(



Haha, have the FBI managed to hack Truecrypt yet?....maybe they have, probably pretend they haven't to snap out predators and cyber criminals who think it's the safest method to encyrpt data ;)




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

No problem, they'll break into your house and put in a hardware or software keylogger..

Alternatively, they can ask you for your key. Which you're obligated to give them by law.

And for which you would be an idiot to do so if the penalty is less then the penalty for the charges you end up incriminating yourself.

Well just think, with working for them you are sure they will do your taxes right.
Plus also you possibly won't get any benefit of any taxbacks.

Nah, IRD will just make up a number and say "You owe us $1billion" and it's up to you to prove you don't.

Wait until they do it to you and see if you still say the same thing.

Some IRD staff abuse their powers.
