Apple recently challenged a court order which would force it to cooperate with the FBI and unlock an iPhone used by one of the two attackers who killed 14 people in San Bernardino, CA in December 2015. The Judge in the case ordered Apple to build a software key which would unlock the phone. The FBI claimed its agents had been unable to access information in the phone without the key. Opponents argue that technology companies should protect the privacy of their customers and creating a special key for law enforcement will open the door to hackers. Proponents argue that law enforcement authorities should have the ability to break encryption technologies in order to prevent and solve crimes.  See recent iPhone encryption news
