30 Nov US Deputy Attorney General Blasts Apple for Privacy Stance
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made a strong statement this week which is believed to be a response against Apple and its stance on privacy.
Rosenstein said that the public should not accept a culture in which technology companies consider it part of their responsibility to defeat legitimate law enforcement activities.
The comment seems to be made in reference to Apple’s refusal to build a backdoor into its devices and CEO Tim Cook’s recent statements on privacy and encryption. In a discussion on device encryption policy in Australia last month, Apple said that while it appreciates the government reaching out to it and other companies, the unfortunate fact is that the draft legislation remains dangerously ambiguous with respect to encryption and security.
