World News, MyNewsCenterNavigator, What it means for Apple if feds have found a way to crack shooter's iPhone, Know why, Know who, Know where, Know what. The know how to succeed.

In its monthlong fight with the Department of Justice over digital privacy, Apple has insisted it would under no circumstances force its engineers to undermine the company's security measures.

So when federal prosecutors announced Monday that an outside party had come forward with a technique that might unlock the iPhone used by San Bernardino terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook without Apple's cooperation, the tech giant could have reason to view it as a major victory — and a major risk.

What would be worse for a company that has insisted privacy is core to its identity — and whose marquee device is among the safest on the market? Caving to government pressure and writing its own decryption software, or conceding its phones are not as secure as some believed.

Apple, civil liberty groups and digital privacy advocates say the first option would be far more damaging.

Doing so would set a precedent for the government to compel any tech company to thwart its own security measures — a dangerous development, they say, in a world where people's lives are largely lived on digital devices.

"We built the iPhone for you, our customers," Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook said Monday as he unveiled the company's newest iPhone.

"We need to decide, as a nation, how much power the government should have over our data and our privacy," he added

But, if the government's new lead is successful, customers will need to decide whether they'll keep buying a product that, though advertised as virtually airtight, could be hackable. Apple's showdown with the FBI provides no bigger stage to put that consumer loyalty to a test.

"Whenever people tell me something is unhackable, I think about how the Titanic was unsinkable," said James Lewis, a cybersecurity expert and a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.

"Apple should have quietly complied since now it has the worst of both worlds," Lewis said.

Other experts say the FBI's claim that a third party can break into Farook's phone validates suspicions that the iPhone's ultra-secure reputation is overstated.

"This development proves what I've been saying all along," said David Cowan, a partner at Bessemer Venture Partners in charge of the firm's cybersecurity investments. "Apple is refusing to publicly acknowledge vulnerabilities in their phones. Despite the veneer of security, the data on our iPhones can be stolen by Apple and others. IPhones would be more secure if Apple cooperated with the FBI, and then remediate the vulnerabilities identified by the FBI. Build the back door, but board it up behind you on the way in."

Apple declined to comment. But attorneys for Apple, speaking on the condition that they not be named or directly quoted, said the company has never claimed its software is unbreakable.

They said combating hackers and criminals requires constant diligence and that the potential of a third-party hack underscores how difficult the company's job is.

If the hacker working with investigators manages to crack the iPhone, Apple should be able to weather the blowback, experts said. The company is already reportedly working on even tougher security tools for its products and software. Its newer line of phones (the 5s from 2013 and later) includes chips with so-called secure enclaves that prevent the device's flash drive from being copied and open to repeated attempts at passcode cracking. Farook was using an older model that could theoretically be open to the technique.

Despite the company's insistence throughout its fight with the FBI that security is of paramount importance, few phone buyers prioritize privacy. A Reuters/Ipsos poll released Monday found only 1 in 10 people said security — such as encryption and passcode — was the most important consideration when purchasing a new phone. The bigger deciding factors? Performance and price.

A hacker bypassing Apple's security may not have a huge effect on the company's bottom line, but if the company is forced to undermine its own security it could alter the very way tech companies do business, privacy advocates warned.

The risk is in handing a precedent-setting backdoor to law enforcement that could create opportunities to exploit anyone's phone, said Cindy Cohn, executive director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

"The concern is the FBI is trying to shift the ground by saying you can build a lock as strongly as you want so long as you also build us a pick to unlock it," Cohn said. "That's far more dangerous than the FBI figuring out a way in on its own."

Onlookers viewed the Justice Department's move to indefinitely postpone a Tuesday court appearance as a momentary victory for Apple — if for no other reason because it was one less day it had to fend off calls to hack into its own software.

"This round went to Apple by default," said Robert Cattanach, a former U.S. Department of Justice attorney who specializes in cybersecurity for the law firm Dorsey & Whitney. "They probably wanted a victory, but this is not a bad consolation."

If, however, its third-party hack fails, the government could still renew its push for Apple to decrypt its own software using the All Writs Act, an all-encompassing, centuries-old law aimed at providing judges the authority to issue orders when other options are exhausted.

Ultimately, the two sides may have to wait for Congress to decide through legislation where the line is drawn between law enforcement and technology.

"I don't think the postponement in court means the fight isn't going to eventually happen," said Esha Bhandari, a staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union. "The debate between the law enforcement and civil liberties and security communities will continue regardless of what the FBI does to get data off the San Bernardino shooter's phone."

The spat has already inspired technology companies to beef-up their security. That will likely prove especially true for Apple, which has had to address other recently discovered vulnerabilities beyond the FBI's purported workaround.

Apple users were hit with a case of ransomware earlier this month — a significant development because the company's software has not been the target of malicious attacks with the same frequency as PCs. And on Monday, researchers at Johns Hopkins University revealed a flaw in the company's iMessage platform that could potentially allow hackers to intercept files.

"This confrontation between Apple and the government is going to affect businesses the same way [NSA leaker] Edward Snowden affected businesses," said Daniel Castro, vice president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation. "It's going to force them to take a close look at their vulnerabilities. Apple will invest more in security, and other companies will too."

 DialogTech Privacy Update: Optimize More Customer Engagements Without Capturing Personally Identifiable Information

DialogTech Privacy Update: Optimize More Customer Engagements Without Capturing Personally Identifiable Information

Marketing attribution within the financial services and healthcare industries can be a difficult task. Marketers want to learn which campaigns drive customers and use that information to find and target similar audiences. While this can be fairly simple for tracking visitors who convert online in the financial services and healthcare industries (as much of the lead data is anonymized), when an opportunity decides to convert offline their personal information becomes more vulnerable.

Due to these challenges, DialogTech has released a new privacy update allowing marketers using call attribution to opt-in to masking caller IDs from inbound phone calls as they reach the DialogTech platform. With this feature, marketers within the healthcare and financial services industries can have peace of mind that not a single piece of personally identifiable information (PII) is captured when calls are attributed and routed using DialogTech’s applications.

How Does It Work?

When an inbound call is made to a number hosted on the DialogTech platform, the caller ID is randomly altered and the original ID is dropped without being recorded by the DialogTech platform. Marketers can continue to attribute calls to the digital and offline advertisements that drive them, but can now do so without personally identifying the individual at any level.

Key Features Include:

  • Masking of caller ID.
  • Option to not record or transfer call recordings to a third-party database (default).
  • Call recording purging: record calls and send them to a third-party database. Recordings will then be purged on the DialogTech side (optional).
  • Inability to perform reverse lookup requests related to caller IDs.
  • Disabled call transcription capabilities.

MBDA: France, UK Agree on 'Cross-Procurement' Policy, Know why, Know who, Know where, Know what. The know how to succeed.

1agld1r.gifMBDA: France, UK Agree on 'Cross-Procurement' Policy

PARIS — Britain and France intend to acquire, respectively, the planned Aster Block 1 New Technology missile and Brimstone guided missile as part of a cooperation policy of “cross procurement,” Antoine Bouvier, chairman of missile builder MBDA, said Thursday.

London and Paris will also equally share a €100 million budget to fund planned concept studies for next generation British and French missiles, including the deep strike Storm Shadow/SCALP cruise weapon.

“It is the intention of Great Britain to acquire Aster block 1 NT, and the intention of France to acquire the Brimstone for the Tiger helicopter in its new standard,” he told journalists as the company reported 2015 financial results, which showed a €1.1 billion ($1.2 billion) jump in orders.

“These two programs, these two products were mentioned in a new framework, which is a cross-procurement framework,” he said.

The two MBDA missiles would be “considered,” Britain and France said at the March 3 bilateral summit at Amiens, France.

London is considering fitting the planned Aster Block 1 NT on the Type 45 air defense destroyer, and Paris wants to arm a planned Tiger Mark 3 upgraded attack helicopter with the Brimstone 2 weapon.

At a previous Anglo-French summit at Brize Norton air base, there was interest from the UK on putting the upgraded Aster on the T45 warship, to boost anti-ballistic missile capability and fleet defense, Bouvier said. The Amiens agreement was a continuation of that policy.

There are several options for the French Army’s Tiger, and France said it would pay close attention to the Brimstone.

This would be a new form of international cooperation, with countries acquiring weapons on a global approach. This is a “very rich form of cooperation,” he said.

British strike fighters have hit moving trucks in Syria, showing the effectiveness of Brimstone, said a British official who was not authorized for comment.

There was talk of cooperation in a previous plan where France would order the Thales Watchkeeper tactical drone and Britain select the Véhicle Blindé de Combat et Infanterie, an infantry vehicle, but Paris has since picked the Sagem Patroller.

MBDA is seeking sales of Brimstone in the US, which has been and continues to be a hard market to enter, Bouvier said. “We are very stubborn,” he said. A requirement is due to be drawn up soon for this type of weapon and the company plans to continue presenting its weapon. European manufacturers, including “platform” builders, have great difficulty to sell in America.

 

France and Italy agreed at the end of 2015 on the road map for the Aster upgrade, and that agreement will be amended to include the Anglo-French cooperation for next-generation deep-strike weapons, he said.

Another significant decision at the Amiens summit was the statement of intent to launch three-year concept studies, with an equally shared €100 million budget, for replacements of the French Scalp, Exocet and naval cruise missile, and the British Storm Shadow, Harpoon and Tomahawk weapons, he said.

The studies for the future cruise/anti-ship weapon are due to be launched next year, he said. These aim to reduce risk, identify technology solutions and converge requirements of the two countries. This is “extremely important” for the company, he said.

The Scalp-Storm Shadow programs allowed creation of the MBDA joint venture between Britain and France. Firms in Italy, Spain and Germany later joined the company.

MBDA reported a 25 percent rise in 2015 orders to €5.2 billion from €4.1 billion a year ago, helped by sales to Egypt and Qatar. Those orders were for weapons for the Rafale fighter and Fremm multimission frigate for the former, and the twin-engined combat jet for the latter.

Orders are expected to fall this year, while sales are expected to break above the €3 billion mark, Bouvier said.

The Qatar order for missiles was worth some €2 billion, while the Egyptian deal was less than €1 billion, French media report. MBDA declined comment.

Exports account for some 70 percent of orders, with domestic deals bringing in 30 percent.

“There is still a large gap on the price,” on negotiations with India on a potential order for 36 Rafales, Bouvier said.

The next days or weeks will show whether a deal will be struck. A big step was the intergovernmental agreement signed in January between France and India on the Rafales, and now the focus is on price negotiations.

Sales rose 20 percent to €2.9 billion from €2.4 billion, and the orderbook climbed to €15.1 billion from €12.6 billion, representing four- to five years of work. Sales are expected to fall this year.

MBDA is in talks with Turkish companies, following Ankara’s decision at the end of last year to cancel a tender for an air defense system, in which China Precision Machinery Import Export Corp (CPMIEC) had been picked for the $3.44 billion project.

Turkey wants local industry to develop a long-range system against cruise and ballistic missiles, while working with “solid partners” to develop the new products, Bouvier said. MBDA is discussing with Turkish companies and will see this year if it can meet the requirements.

MBDA was offering its Aster 30 against the Patriot missile from Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, and against the Chinese bid.

On the Aster, the new technology upgrade would allow the Aster 30 to hit enemy missiles with a range of 1,000 kilometers. The Block 1 model held by French and Italian forces can hit incoming missiles with a range of 600 kilometers, such as the Scud B.

An upgraded NT version is on the roadmap for building an Aster Block 2, which would intercept weapons with a range of 3,000 kilometers.
