Encryption-Breaking Bill: Good Intentions, But Bad Idea?
May 03, 2016
A hot topic in the technology industry is in regards to the recent legal battle of Apple and the FBI in which the FBI wanted Apple to unlock an iPhone that belonged to an offender involved in the San Bernardino shooting this past December. The case was dropped as the FBI ended up unlocking the phone without Apple’s support; however, the conversation hasn’t died down. Do you think the government crossed the line of an unreasonable search in this instance? Federal officials don’t think so as they’re hoping to pass an encryption-breaking bill that would monitor possible “encrypted” discussions to prevent future acts of violence.
