The President's Column
There is a lot of FUD ("fear, uncertainty and doubt") being spread
about the FBI's request to Apple to disable the self-destruct
mechanism on an iPhone owned by the San Bernardino terrorists. I'm
strongly against government overreach into our lives, but you may be
surprised by my take on the situation and my support of the FBI's
position. Read about it in this month's Scanning
of the SAFE newsletter.
Send me your comments and critiques. I'm always interested in
hearing from you.

The Truth about the FBI, Apple, the San Bernardino Terrorists, and
Hacking an iPhone
The reports about the FBI's request for Apple to hack into the
iPhone belonging to the San Bernardino terrorists is full of
misinformation, much of it to promote various political and business
agendas. I've been an engineering consultant to lawyers to support
intellectual property litigation for about 20 years, so I know how
to hack into devices. It's possible, it's done all the time in
situations you rarely hear about, it's done under a court order, and
it doesn't violate any rights. The controversy you hear now is
because of political and marketing motives. Let me explain. Although
I'm not involved with Apple or the FBI, and I don't have any direct
knowledge of this case, my experience in similar situations informs
me about what is really going on.
