A Solution to the Apple Battle for Privacy vs Court Order

Even Tim Cook, Apple CEO, made it clear that he would like to help the FBI get the data from the phone used by the San Bernardino terrorist. But, he doesn’t want that phone data-opening system that Apple would have to produce, to be used by government or by private hackers against any or all of us.

None of us want our bank account data, our health information, and much more, being made available to hackers, whether governmental or private.

So, what’s the answer that could end this battle that could otherwise go all the way to the Supreme Court?

The Court order could be adjusted as needed to make the following clear: The FBI would agree to the Court ordering it to turn over the terrorist’s phone to Apple, and Apple would invent the system to get possession of the encrypted data on the phone and turn that data over to the FBI. Apple would be allowed to then immediately destroy all evidence of how the encrypted data was retrieved, so that the system could not be used again. This procedure could be repeated in the future to cooperate with other court orders, as long as those court orders pertain only to cases that help ensure public safety from violence that reasonably could be expected otherwise.

I’d like to have your opinions about this possible solution to the problem.
