Hi there, friend.
Following up from last week’s article on Apple’s approach to curbing CSAM, Matthew Green (professor focusing on encryption) and Alex Stamos (former Chief Security Officer at Facebook) penned this op-ed on the Apple scanning for CSAM:
I remain pretty conflicted about it, primarily because of the slippery slope nature. It’s also clear to me that Apple’s decision to do the scanning on-device (which they see as a feature) contributes to my unease. There’s an implicit agreement you have when deciding to use some XYZ cloud service to store files for you: they can and will scan for bad things. But this feels different; my device, using the default settings, will have active surveillance over my stuff.
