If you’re interested in learning more about the dispute between Apple and the FBI over access to encrypted iPhone information, the Electronic Information Privacy Center has a page dedicated to the case. It describes the background of the dispute and has links to the briefs, including some very insightful amicus briefs.
So many smart people have written so much on the issue that I have very little to add at this point, beyond this: The dispute is about much more than whether the government can compel Apple to provide access to a single iPhone related to a particular terrorism investigation. It is about how our society will eventually balance compelling national security/law enforcement interests against compelling societal interests in protecting the privacy of the vast digital lives that all of us carry in our cell phones these days. But, for the moment at least, I’ll just continue link to useful resources
