The CyberWire Daily Briefing 03.03.16
news from RSA 2016
US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter visited RSA and took a clear position in the crypto wars that's substantially the same as that taken by NSA Director Rogers: he's in favor of strong encryption, and he's opposed to backdoors. The Pentagon is also actively seeking industry help against ISIS, and industry help in security its information. The Department's "Hack the Pentagon" program (and invitation--but please don't take this one too literally, kids) has been particularly well-received.
Attorney General Lynch's explanation of the Department of Justice position in its dispute with Apple over unlocking the phone used by one of the San Bernardino jihadists received a less sympathetic hearing. Sentiment around the expo is running in Apple's favor.

The ACLU, in an amicus brief filed regarding the FBI's request that Apple assist in giving them access to an iPhone used by a San Bernardino shooter, warns that if the Department of Justice has its way, we can all forget about trusting future software updates. What assurance, they ask, will users have that they're not being pushed another Government OS?
