Can law enforcement force you to divulge your passwords? How do you limit the scope of a search warrant on an iPhone? Is powerful encryption technology creating ‘warrant-free zones’ in cyberspace? Or are we actually in the Golden Age of Surveillance?

Today I speak with Andrew Crocker (Staff Attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation) about how our Constitutional rights work in cyberspace. We’ll talk about the locked iPhone in the Texas mass shooting case and discuss how it relates to the San Bernardino case from 2015 and the Crypto Wars of the 1990’s.

Andrew Crocker is a staff attorney on the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s civil liberties team. He focuses on EFF’s national security and privacy docket, as well as the Coders' Rights Project. While in law school, Andrew worked at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, the American Civil Liberties Union’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project, and the Center for Democracy and Technology. He received his undergraduate and law degrees from Harvard University and an M.F.A. in creative writing from New York University.
