Apple hires mobile encryption pioneer amid encryption debate

InfoWorld - 2 hours 47 min ago

Apple has rehired a mobile encryption pioneer as it continues to face pressure from governments wanting access to user data stored on iPhones. 

Jon Callas most recently worked as a co-founder of Silent Circle, which produced the security-minded Blackphone and has joined the iPhone and iPad maker in an undisclosed capacity, Apple revealed to Reuters. Callas is a veteran of the security industry who also co-founded PGP Corporation.

He first worked at Apple from 1995-1997, then again from 2009-2011. He has two patents to his name from that second stint that are both focused on full-disk encryption, something that Apple uses in its smartphones, tablets, and computers.

PHP 7.1 update puts speed before syntax

InfoWorld - 4 hours 46 min ago

Following the built-for-speed PHP 7.0, version 7.1 of the server-side Web development language also will hone in on performance, albeit to a lesser degree.

The feature set remains in flux, but continued speed improvement remains a critical goal, according to Zeev Suraski, CTO of Zend, which has led development of the engine for PHP. "We're continuing to work on performance, although we won't be seeing anything nearly as dramatic as what we've seen in 7.0."
