• Many iOS Encryption Measures 'Unused,' Say Cryptographers

    9 days ago - By Mac Rumors

    IOS does not utilize built-in encryption measures as much as it could do, allowing for potentially unnecessary security vulnerabilities, according to cryptographers at Johns Hopkins University .
    Using publicly available documentation from Apple and Google, law enforcement reports about bypassing mobile security features, and their own analysis, the cryptographers assessed the robustness of iOS and Android encryption. The research found that while encryption infrastructure on iOS "sounds really good," it is largely left unused:
    "On iOS in particular, the infrastructure is in place for this...
