February 23, 2016 / in Blog, Encryption/Security / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

Should the US government require technology companies to provide a “master key” to unlock all encrypted files? What began as a hypothetical question in the US Presidential Primary Election debates has evolved into an interesting standoff between tech titans and the FBI around encrypted files stored on an Apple iPhone (used by one of the San Bernardino shooters).

Once the official or corporate system is circumvented, security has devolved from professional (IT executive) to amateur (end user). Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email system purportedly set up in her house by a colleague is a perfect, high profile e [...]
