It's been a very long time since I've heard Rubberhose kicked around these 
parts, but wasn't it specifically designed to provide deniability through 
the production of a "false key" which provided an alternative decryption 
that appeared to be "all the data" via the false key (while leaving the 
actual secret data unencrypted)?
