    Bluetooth access directly to the crypto IC? That's sort of like having a 'smart' bank vault door, which makes it easy to change the encryption keys pin combination by reaching through this handy window on the side...

    Yes, if changing the encryption keys pin combination irrevocably destroyed the contents of the bank vault. 'Cos that's what changing the encryption key (note: not password/passphrase/PIN) would do to an encrypted hard drive: render the contents of the drive, encrypted with the old key, completely unreadable.

    Seems unnecessarily complex to me. If they would have used dram instead of nand... all that would be needed was a remote battery off command... goodbye data. Additionally it may have had a side effect of being quite a lot faster in operation.
