Frozen keys

slightly older bit of new
"Already generating some discussion in the forums and elsewhere on the web is the recently released paper "Lest We Remember: Cold Boot Attacks on Encryption Keys" from researchers at Princeton University. The researchers' main finding is that data remains in DRAM for longer than generally expected. Furthermore, this period can be extended significantly by cooling the memory chips in question (a somewhat unsophisticated but effective methodology of achieving this cooling effect being the use of an inverted "canned air" canister!)"
thats not what i whated to disscuss but as you can see i have discovered a video of the process in action
