Just The Beginning

The Apple versus FBI encryption issue just became more confusing.

Dave Lee writing for the BBC:

If the method proposed by the “outside party” works, here’s the question: will the FBI engage in responsible disclosure with Apple after it has accessed the iPhone used by Farook?

If it does, Apple will surely seek to fix the flaw immediately, putting us back to square one when the inevitable next case comes around.

But if the FBI doesn’t share the method, what will that do to the reputation of Apple’s products if it’s known the US government is openly in possession of a security flaw of this magnitude?
