Encryption used in Apple’s iMessage chat service has stymied
attempts by federal drug enforcement agents to eavesdrop on
suspects’ conversations, an internal government document reveals.
An internal Drug Enforcement Administration document seen by CNET
discusses a February 2013 criminal investigation and warns that
because of the use of encryption, “it is impossible to intercept
iMessages between two Apple devices” even with a court order
approved by a federal judge.
A win on the privacy front.
