Apple will reportedly store Russian user data locally, possibly decrypt on request

Recommended Posts

How does one decrypt user data? Doesn't that kinda defeat the purpose of having an encryption in the first place? LOL?

"Only" the "good guys" will have access to the decryption keys, so it's all "good".

Like absurd Australian law on encryption? Hell no.

In a free country like USA, you guys can battle on in the courts and still live to tell the tale for years. Let me tell you a story from Asia... My former manager got a new role handling Russia-China transactions, and got it in his head to clean up the dirty accounts that had been cascading through the system for years.

 

Two weeks later, he received a bullet in the mail while he was having breakfast with the kids.

 

Tell me, what would you do?

Apple holds the user cipher keys for the iCould accounts. Data stored in the device itself is encrypted locally, so as long as it's not synced with iCloud, the government can't ask Apple for something it doesn't have.
