Mekong Posted February 20, 2016 Report Share Posted February 20, 2016 The FBI demands "(1)The SIF (System Information File) would bypass or disable the auto erase function whether or not enabled (2) The SIF would enable the FBI to submit passwords to the SUBJECT DEVICE for testing electronically (meaning that the attempts at the passcode would not have to be manually typed on the iPhones Screen) (3) The SIF would not introduce any additional delay between failed passcode attempts beyond what is incurred by the hardware on the SUBJECT DEVICE at either a government facility, or alternatively, at an Apple facility (as is done when Apple recovers data from earlier IOS versions), but passcode attempts would be electronically submitted to the device by the government, this would allow the government to conduct the passcode attempt whilst Apple retains the SIF" The reason Apple upgraded the SIF was in response to Snowden's whistleblowing on NSA snooping and now the FBI are asking Apple for a backdoor key to bypass the encryption. I support Apple for standing up to the FBI and saying NO, it is all about privacy Thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
