Secure Applications of Low-Entropy Keys
Kelsey, John, et al.
"We introduce the notion of key stretching, a mechanism to convert short
s-bit keys into longer keys, such that the complexity required _to
brute-force search_ an s + t-bit keyspace is the same as the time required
_to brute-force search_ an s-bit key stretched by t bits."

Forensics expert says FBI to use NAND-mirroring to crack terrorist's iPhone
"... Farook’s iPhone used a four-digit passcode, which would result in
10,000 permutations, a low enough number to be possible _to brute-force_
using NAND-mirroring ..."
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
