Hi Eric,

Good point - it slipped my mind before but I've also heard that the
iPhone uses hardware support of some kind for its encrypted storage.
Does anyone know the details? Is the key stored on a separate,
securely erasable medium, or on the SSD itself, protected only by the PIN?

Cheers,
Michael
