Yesterday we heard that a number of companies including Google and Facebook were working to improve encryption to protect their users, now according to a recent report, Apple is improving encryption on iCloud.
Apple and the FBI are in the middle of a court case over encryption, this had promoted a number of companies to improve their encryption and now Apple is doing the same with iCloud.
Apple’s iPhone is virtually impossible to hack, the FBI are looking to get Apple to create new software that would allow them to hack the iPhone, Apple is refusing to do this is it would reduce the security on the iPhone and it would also create a back door into Apple’s iOS.
Apple’s iCloud software can be decoded at the moment if needed, Apple is apparently changing this so that they cannot even access information on the service by improved encryption.
It would appear that all the FBI has done with their case against Apple is forced Internet companies to improve encryption so that nobody cannot access peoples data.
The case between Apple and the FBI is ongoing, the outcome of it is yet to be decided, with both parties refusing to back down, to be fair to Apple, all they are doing is protecting their users from future hacks and protecting their data by not creating a backdoor into their iPhone software.
