A US Federal judge is ordering Apple to open the encryption on iPhones belonging to the San Bernadino shooters, disabling the lock and enabling the FBI to access “relevant… critical data.”Philip Lieberman, president and CEO of Lieberman Software have the following comments on it.
[su_note note_color=”#ffffcc” text_color=”#00000″]Philip Lieberman, President of Lieberman Software :
“It is well known that both the phone carriers and manufacturer of locked cell phones maintain their own set of keys within their publicly declared walled gardens to the devices they sell. This barrier to competition and their ability to select winners and losers in their app store as well as patch/improve their operating system at any time, is also the back door they have to get into any phone their wish and do as they wish at any time irrespective of a client’s wish to maintain privacy or security. It will be interesting to see how all parties respond to a Federal order to comply with a lawful order designed to counter terrorism.”[/su_note]
