Jonathan Zdziarski Confirms Hire By Apple

Jonathan Zdziarski, a respected iPhone security researcher who you may know better under the internet pseudonym: ‘NerveGas,’ has confirmed he has been hired by Apple.

Publishing a post entitled “Joining Apple” to his personal blog, the researcher writes:

“I’m pleased to announce that I’ve accepted a position with Apple’s Security Engineering and Architecture team, and am very excited to be working with a group of like minded individuals so passionate about protecting the security and privacy of others.”

Zdziarski says that the decision to join the Californian firm marks the conclusion of what he feels has been a personal “matter of conscience.”

Privacy is sacred; our digital lives can reveal so much about us – our interests, our deepest thoughts, and even who we love,” the security researcher says. “I am thrilled to be working with such an exceptional group of people who share a passion to protect that,” he concludes.

Exactly what Zdziarski will be doing over in Cupertino, wasn’t shared. But given Zdziarski’s background in analysing the effectiveness of solutions built of the purpose of mobile security, (and in doing so uncovering what is widely considered to be the first major backdoor in iOS)… it can only be a good thing that he is going to be on Apple’s side, going forward.

Especially as the debate over whether it’s morally right -or even possible- to systematically unlock an iOS device, bypassing all in-built protection methods such as “Touch ID” and the device’s passcode option, continues to rage on …
