Broader Implications of Apple vs. the FBI for Cyber Security and Privacy 

Is the legal battle about Apple writing code to bypass its operating system’s security features and allow the FBI to try a brute force attack to crack the encryption used in a terrorist’s phone really just a one-time exception or does it open up Pandora’s box?  Some have seen implications for the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 13th amendments in how this dispute plays out.  Is the Constitution able to handle this type of question or is a new law (or even a Constitutional Amendment) needed?  Come hear and examine these and related questions with some of the best minds in cyber law and policy at the next University Seminar on Internet Freedom and Governance.
