During a keynote panel discussion yesterday, the former Secretary of U.S. Homeland Security Michael Chertoff noted that forcing Apple to write an operating system so it can try to break into the iPhone used by a terrorist is the computer code equivalent of building a biological weapon. Chertoff specifically stated that "Once you've created code that's potentially compromising, it's like a bacteriological weapon. You're always afraid of it getting out of the lab." The 'creation of code' is a reference to what Apple dubbed the 'GovtOS' in their motion to Judge Sheri Pym on Feb. 25, 2016.
