I have very little knowledge about the Norwegian laws and the cryptography parts of it.

Suppose the police seize my computer and all my hard-drives on suspicion that I have pirated software. All of my drives are encrypted with BitLocker. Can they force me to provide a decryption key? What would consequences be of refusing to provide it?


If you are using BitLocker, the police don't need you to give them your password. They can just ask Microsoft for it. You might want to use something else instead.

    Not if you have the professional and above versions of windows and you disable key sharing with M$.
