Should you easily hand over those encryption keys to the law?

Don’t try this in India yet, but in US, a district court is about to judge on whether you have to hand over encryption keys to the law if asked. Or can you decline because that is akin to self-incrimination? Given that the general pattern in our country of late is that you are guilty till proven innocent, trying this at “home” is probably only going to get yourself convicted,

I personally feel that the point of deliberation out here is on thin ground. If you can get a magistrate’s order to get a search warrant for a house, I don’t see how that is different from a similar warrant to search your computer. The difference is that one key is physical and the other is not.
