Interests in safety and privacy for maintaining an individuals data away from prying eyes is continuing to be a serious concern for the FBI, which is desiring to be capable of accessing any data off of any devices, and is considering encryption they can’t break into as an ‘urgent public security issue.‘
FBI officials are so desperate to vilify this concept of individual data encryption that they’re employing increasingly intense rhetoric, with forensic work Stephen Flatley somewhat recently referring to Apple Computers as ‘evil geniuses’ for making it harder to break into these devices.
Flatley went on with complaints that Apple was deliberately trying to ‘thwart law enforcement,’ suggesting they’re ‘jerks’ for getting finished in such a manner.
Beyond the FBI becoming upset, it’s not clear about what they’re proposing to do. They desire absolute unfettered access to Americans’ data at a moment’s notice, but encryption’s tend to make that completely not even possible.
