One of the characters who has shown his support for the apple company in the face of the FBI-related case is Edward Snowden. Although a few weeks ago he used his Twitter account to indicate that Apple should not be intimidated by a government order, during a speech at a conference organized by the NGO ‘Common Cause’, Snowden again referred to the issue of the San Bernardino iPhone .

“The FBI says Apple has the ‘exclusive’ technical means to unlock the phone. Respectfully, that is a lie” , indicated the character, who is known to have stolen secret documents from the NSA, to show the world the scandalous mass surveillance of the Internet .

To strengthen his argument, Snowden used his Twitter account and shared a link from security expert Daniel Kahn Gillmor’s blog, where he talks in depth about the FBI’s intentions to request Apple’s assistance in preventing the “auto-delete” feature on the iPhone 5c in the San Bernardino case.

It is clear from the text that the government has a handful of alternatives for accessing the encrypted iPhone, only that these methods are expensive, time-consuming and some could ultimately lead to the destruction of the physical memory of the computer. But in addition to the expensive and risky options, other experts claim that the CIA is another alternative to be able to access the information on the phone .

“The FBI is asking for new powers that could put our entire communications infrastructure at risk (…) If they win, future software updates will bring a difficult dilemma for users. When we are asked to install a software update, we will not know if it is an order from a government agency, or if it really represents an improvement for the platform” , concludes Gillmor.
