Ever since its release in 2007, Apple Inc.’s iPhone has become an integral part of people’s daily lives. Today, millions of consumers wake up to alarms blaring from their iPhones and fall asleep while going through Facebook or Twitter on their iPhones. However, only few of us are intimately knowledgeable about the ins and outs of Apple’s operating system, iOS. One of the world’s foremost authority on iPhones and iOS-related digital forensics and security is hacker known as “NerveGas,” and he just joined Apple.
NerveGas, also known as Jonathan Zdziarski, recently announced that he has accepted a position with Apple’s Security Engineering and Architecture team. He said that the decision to join the Cupertino, Calif. tech giant “marks the conclusion of what I feel has been a matter of conscience for me over time.” Saying that people’s “digital lives can reveal so much,” Zdziarski said he will work to protect consumers’ digital privacy.
Even before joining Apple, Zdziarski has been a vocal proponent for protection of digital privacy, particularly during Apple’s clash with the Federal Bureau of Investigation over access to one of the alleged San Bernardino, Calif. terrorist’s encrypted iPhone.
In a friend of the court filing, Zdziarski and other computer security professionals said the case “endangers public safety” because it could enable law enforcement to commandeer consumer devices for surveillance. Building code to unlock just one phone wouldn't work because of the risk the software would escape Apple's control through theft, embezzlement or a foreign government's order, the group said.
