Apple 打算把 iCloud 加密用的 Key 放到用戶端

在經過最近 FBIApple 的戰鬥中 (FBI–Apple encryption dispute),Apple 正規劃把 iCloud 加密所使用的 key 放到用戶端裝置上,而非放在伺服器端:「Apple to Hand iCloud Encryption Key Management to Account Holders」:

In effect, Apple is following the lead of secure cloud services such as SpiderOak which has been offering what it calls “Zero Knowledge” cloud storage. By that, SpiderOak retains no information about whatever is stored in its cloud service, nor the means of gaining access to it.

也就是加解密都放在 client 端處理,server 端只是 storage。

這類型最大的問題是 server 端沒辦法運用資料,但 iCloud 的確可以放掉這些功能 (搜尋之類的),純粹當 storage 使用,藉以讓使用者自己裝置保護。

而蘋果在使用者的裝置上把類似於 HSM 的系統做的頗強大... 不知道 Android 有沒有機會也跟進。(雖然我自己是用 Apple 家的東西...)
