Apple vs. Federal Bureau of Investigation, is a federal lawsuit against Apple. The FBI recovered an iPhone 5C from a terrorist that swore allegiance to ISIS and, along with his wife, killed 14 people in San Bernardino, CA on December 2nd, 2015. Apple cryptographically protects the security of all of its devices with high encryption. The FBI wanted to search the device for any ties or information about ISIS or future terrorist attacks. Apple wants to protect customer’s data/information, and has worked hard on being known as the privacy company.
Some people believe that apple is wrong in the case and should be obligated to allow the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and other federal law enforcement agencies to ‘back door’ into devices for national security purposes. Other people believe that Apple should stand firm and not allow the government to invade our privacy anymore than they currently are. If Apple does put a backdoor into the encryption of its’ devices, it could be exploited by hackers trying to do bad things.
The FBI and Department of Justice, say that having a way for them to get into the devices could stop future crime, such as other terrorist attacks. It could also lead to arresting accomplices to certain crimes, such as drug rings.
