Researchers Break Apple’s Encryption

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University (JHU), led by Matthew D. Green, have found a bug in Apple’s encryption. It can allow a skilled attacker to decrypt secure photos and videos sent as messages. The flaw might not have been used by the FBI? to recover information on the San Bernardino terrorist’s iPhone, but it proves that encryption isn’t fool proof as Apple Claimed.

Green is a cryptographer and said that a court compelling Apple to undo its own security makes no sense as there are already bugs which can be exploited. He said, “Even Apple, with all their skills — and they have terrific cryptographers — wasn’t able to quite get this right.” Green’s team of graduate students will publish a paper describing the bug as soon as Apple issues a patch for it.

Green said that it’s frightening that “we’re having this conversation about adding back doors to encryption when we can’t even get basic encryption right.”

In conclusion this research has prove that the so called “Almighty Apple” with “Almighty Encryption”  on expensive smartphone are not truly safe as advertised.
