The full-disk encryption protecting your Android can be cracked

Ms. Smith | July 4, 2016
A security researcher showed how to crack full-disk encryption on Qualcomm-powered Android devices running Lollipop or later.

Beniamini delved into the technical details which you can check out in full on "Bits, Please!" He concluded:

As we've seen, the current encryption scheme is far from bullet-proof, and can be hacked by an adversary or even broken by the OEMs themselves (if they are coerced to comply with law enforcement). I hope that by shedding light on the subject, this research will motivate OEMs and Google to come together and think of a more robust solution for FDE.
