This video is a great example of why it makes me sad that the ECC talks with China. (btw you get a small glimpse into how I make my money through out the video. and what weaponised exploits are worth ) I don’t think I have ever worked with zerodium though. Mainly pentest companies.
Sure the iPhone has never been secure. but watch the whole thing. look at who was targeted and how.
Hard encryption is a tool. It can be used for good or for evil. That is just the way it works. There are some parallels with zcash to this video. But it is not the closed source. zcash isn’t, with zcash technology it is the high barrier to entry from both a maths and cryptographic standpoint.
It is also not a completely fair comparison, the iPhone is not disruptive technology. zcash is. bitcoin was for a bit. but that is for another post.
