Actually it should be "rubber-hose cryptanalysis"

from http://catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/R/rubber-hose-cryptanalysis.html:

The technique of breaking a code or cipher by finding someone who has
the key and applying a rubber hose vigorously and repeatedly to the
soles of that luckless person's feet until the key is discovered.
Shorthand for any method of coercion: the originator of the term drily
noted that it ?can take a surprisingly short time and is quite
computationally inexpensive? relative to other cryptanalysis methods.
