The recent shooting in San Berndino, California, has sparked a great controversy. The FBI needs to crack into the phone of Syed Farook, a shooter in the massacre; However, only limited attempts can be made to crack the Apple made encryption before all the vital information is wiped clean. The FBI has court ordered Apple Inc. to create a code to disable the amount of guesses, so that infinite guesses can be made. Apple has made a statement that the court order oversteps the legal ability of the government, so the company will not design the code that is needed. A moral standpoint has also been taken on this point as well. With a little modification of such a code, any phone security could be hashed and the personal information at risk. Government should not have the power to court order companies to into designing anything for any reason. National security should never override personal privacy. Encryption was made to fight things like the Patriot act.
