Default US ruling: Disclosure of passwords is unenforceable

From http://h-online.com/-1442424

Quote:
On Thursday, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit ruled that, under US law, the decryption of data can be regarded as giving testimony (US vs. John Doe). The Fifth Amendment to the US Constitution states that US citizens can't be forced to incriminate themselves.
