Vote Shillary ban encryption!

lol who says google and apple can't do what the legislation requires?

I know for a fact that Apples encryption uploads your key to their system.

Google could very likely be doing the same thing when you draw your fay unlock pattern.

Don't forget M$ also uploads your key to the cloud. https://theintercept.com/2015/12/28/recently-bought-a-windows-computer-microsoft-probably-has-your-encryption-key/

>backdoors in phones

At least we'll be able to swap the batteries again now.

>>52450226
fun.

what I was trying to say though is the legislation being discussed is already very likely being done by the parties called out.

the only people this legislation will hurt is vendors who sell phones which use free and open source software only which for obvious reasons could never really comply or be enforced to comply.

Why would google and apple bend to the will of New York?

They have way more influence with their products than new york law does over it's citizens

Sounds more like these are the only vendors that are worth considering to buy from there then. Nobody is waiting for a backdoored phone.

apparently they are since I don't know any FOSS phones honestly. At least none that are such out of the box.

So this bill only affects the faggots that lives in New York, right?
>>
>>52450339
>“Any smartphone that is manufactured on or after January First, Two Thousand Sixteen, and sold or leased in New York, shall be capable of being decrypted and unlocked by its manufacturer or its operating system provider,” the bill says.
>>
>>52450339
no it screws everyone over because the mechanisms in the firmware or OS must exist to read the user's created key and then upload it or store it somewhere so that pursuant of a warrant, the phone OEM or OS provider can retrieve your key and decrypt it for law enforcement.\

These mechanisms likely already exists in all nonfree phone OSes including but not limited to, Google's Android, iOS, Windows Phone, etc.
