Protection considerations of those Creating the FBI iOS
If Apple are compelled to do this for the FBI, what protection considerations would be provided to those tasked with investigating and coding this?
Tim Cook would be the only overseeing manager,
at least 2 bods researching the mechanisms to make such a process viable,
the same 2 bods to build and test the code & finally apply to the phone?
So that's at least 2 people that would have the knowledge of creating an iOS that can defeat an iPhone 5c.
Its not to hard to imagine that If a foreign power knew there was sensitive data on an iPhone5c or above that had fallen into the hands of another foreign power that they didn't want them to have, they may go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that data remained secure. The flip side of the story is as equally compelling. Suddenly there is a massive money can't buy premium on those individuals with intimate knowledge of undermining iOS security, from all sides criminal and government.
For the sake of my family I'd not want to be the guy that investigates and codes that custom FBI iOS.
