Now the onslaught from the security services and law enforcement of the USG is going to get really involved and interesting. This is a research paper which looks at the Cloud, and what evidence, and how evidence which can be admitted in court can be extracted via forensic software. And it aint secret...it is going to be legit law enforcement. If end to end encryption is going to be the norm in the internet of things, then access by the state to information stored there, via warrants is going to become essential. How this is going to affect the various amendments to the US Constitution, which protect the privacy of property and the person is also up for grabs.

Watch out for more use of the All Writs Act where there is no specific legislation which allows for warrants of search and seizure...Also, as more companies store their stuff in the cloud, then other private companies may need access for lawsuits, in cases of breach of trust, contract and copyright, amongst other things. And, remember too, that there are not only considerations by the USG and US companies, but ramifications which affect many other nation states in the world. It is all getting very complicated.
