Your Laptop Data Security

A few months ago I scanned some news article that talked about the vulnerability of reading memory chips even after the computer has been turned off. I thought it was an interesting idea, but didn’t look at it deeper.

Then I saw this YouTube video from CITP at Princeton. You don’t have to be a crypto-geek or a math major to understand this; the video explains it in plain English.

You know that when you turn your computer off, the RAM (memory) is wiped, right? Think again.
