iMessage: Apple Could Read Messages of Users

With the short message service iMessage send and receive users of iPhone, iPad or Mac text, images and videos. Apple always claimed that the communication is completely safe thanks to end-to end encryption and immune to listen from outside. At least the last part is true, as researchers of the French company have discovered Quark lab. To outsiders, the interception of messages is actually impossible? The contents are safely encrypted directly on the device of the transmitter and leave again to decrypt only by the recipient.

Control over key

However: Apple themselves could technically seen access to the contents of the iMessage message received, because the company from Cupertino operates the servers across the keys for the encryption. Two security experts from Quark lab have analyzed how iMessage in detail. Their discovery: Apple could not only intercept the key exchange messages, but also decipher.

In their presentation they stress, however, that there is no evidence, that Apple is actually doing this. However the company by government authorities might be prompted.

Transmit the password in clear text

In the course of the analysis, the researchers made a further discovery: the service sends an Apple ID and password in plain text. Again, third parties generally not to the information can approach. Apple however knows that the access data that its users use for services and the stored files (about iCloud backups). Under certain conditions, it would be also possible that an administrator of a company in which the employees professionally use their iPhones, could read the password. This is due to the way iOS proceeds with security certificates.
