Cotton squares off against Apple CEO | TheHill - 0 views

  •  
    Apple CEO Tim Cook was on 60 Minutes yesterday, reiterating his company's support for strong encryption. Today, Senator Tom Cotton called on Apple and other companies to install "back doors" for law enforcement agencies. I wonder if Tom Cotton has read the "Keys Under Doormats" report by Schneier, Rivest, Diffie, et al.

35 per cent have upped online security following iCloud leak | Business Technology - 4 views

  •  
    Interesting that ~35% of 1000 surveyed have upped the strength of their passwords, but only 6% turned on two-factor ID, which was a major cause of the iCloud hacks going undetected for so long.
  •  
    It seems that two-factor authentication would not have prevented those iCloud hacks (according to this piece: http://www.tuaw.com/2014/09/02/think-iclouds-two-factor-authentication-protects-your-privacy/), but since Apple has now changed the triggers for two-factor to include things like iCloud access, two-factor will be more helpful going forward. So it is a little surprising that more people haven't enabled it.
  •  
    I'm also reminded of the ACLU's Chris Soghoian's point (https://www.aclu.org/blog/technology-and-liberty/lessons-celebrity-icloud-photo-breach) that one reason people have crappy Apple passwords is that Apple makes you use your password so darn often. I know I get frustrated when I have to enter my (crazy long) Apple password on my iPhone just to download a free app.

Forget Apple vs. the FBI: WhatsApp Just Switched on Encryption for a Billion People | WIRED - 1 views

  •  
    "With end-to-end encryption in place, not even WhatsApp's employees can read the data that's sent across its network. In other words, WhatsApp has no way of complying with a court order demanding access to the content of any message, phone call, photo, or video traveling through its service. Like Apple, WhatsApp is, in practice, stonewalling the federal government, but it's doing so on a larger front-one that spans roughly a billion devices."
