As the argument over smartphone encryption continues on between device manufacturers like Apple, devoted to strong encryption, and U.S. federal government officials pushing for backdoors to access data, several states have gotten involved in the fray.
New York State Assemblymember Matthew Titone introduced a bill last summer that would require smartphone manufacturers to create devices that can be decrypted or unlocked or face fines, and now California State Assemblymember Jim Cooper is following in his footsteps.
Cooper on Wednesday introduced a bill that would require any smartphone manufactured after January 1, 2017 and sold in California to “be capable of being decrypted and unlocked by its manufacturer or its operating system provider.” Violations carry a $2,500 fee per phone.
Should such a bill pass, it would, like the New York bill, affect both Apple and Google. iOS and Android have default encryption settings that do not allow the companies to access locked customer phones. Starting with iOS 8, Apple ceased storing encryption keys for iOS devices, making it impossible for the company to unlock content on passcode-protected devices under police request.
Quando noi parliamo di USA, spesso parliamo senza sapere di cosa parliamo.
Spesso li portiamo ad esempio delle nostre aspirazioni, senza sapere che le nostre aspirazioni non sono le loro.
Tanto chi va a verificare?
