Craig Federighi from Apple Talks About iCloud's Expanded End-To-End Encryption

Apple today announced the launch of an Advanced Data Protection feature that expands end-to-end encryption to additional data stored in iCloud, including ‌iCloud‌ Backup, iCloud Drive, Reminders, Notes, and more.

With the launch of the feature, Apple's Craig Federighi did a quick interview with The Wall Street Journal's Joanna Stern to discuss the change and other new security features that are coming in the future.

Federighi said that expanding ‌iCloud‌ end-to-end encryption took a long time to implement because Apple needed to "build toward the moment" and prove the technology.

Craig Federighi

Some of the steps we took over a decade ago designing iCloud and how we encrypted were necessary precursors to build toward this moment.

Using end-to-end encryption for other data types like passwords and browser history helped prove that technology.

Craig Federighi

With end-to-end encryption expanding to most ‌iCloud‌ services, should an attacker get access to ‌iCloud‌ data, there would be no way to decrypt it.
