1990s Callas work at Apple, from 2009 to 2011 and working at Apple, when he designed a system of encryption to protect data stored in the Macintosh computer. Apple did not disclose the positions held Callas, Callas have also declined to comment.

Whether Apple should help US law enforcement authorities to get stored in the shooting perpetrators phone encrypted information in the problem with the US government and public confrontation. Earlier this year, the US Justice Department asked the federal judge in California and New York to force Apple to crack encrypted iPhone, including last year's San Bernardino shooting killer iPhone.

FBI and law enforcement agencies believe that technology companies need government help to hunt criminals. Apple and other technology companies asking them to express their bypass encryption will highlight the security issues of their products, making them more vulnerable to malicious hacker attacks.

Meanwhile, the Senate committee is thinking about legislation requiring technology companies to help law enforcement agencies to bypass encryption. Kallas expressed his opposition to the company under pressure from law enforcement agencies to crack their encryption products. But he said he also supported a compromise proposal, that has law enforcement officials in the court order under this proposal does not disclose the use of software vulnerabilities black into the science and technology system, as long as they are after the disclosure of these vulnerabilities, so that they can be repaired .

"Jon aspects of the story have a very deep understanding," PGP Corp CEO Phil • Dunkelberg (Phil Dunkelberger) says. Callas return to Apple shows how encrypted communication will enter the mainstream.

Both companies, though small-scale but highly acclaimed.
