A judge has ruled that the keyboard sniffer used by the federal government to snatch the password for a PGP private key was not used unconstitutionally. I’m pretty sure I’m OK with this. The FBI obtained a court order to install the device. The defense argued that they didn’t obtain a wiretap order, and use of the device constituted wiretapping. It seems to me that the fact that the judge’s order was not a wiretap order is a technicality, unless there’s some higher standard required to obtain a wiretap order than the order that was granted by the judge.
