Hit low for those users Android. A expert of safety computer of the University Johns Hopkins has evaluated the fortress of Android 7.0 Nougat, finding that actually, to your trial personal, the system operating of Google takes a considerable delay in matter of encryption with regard to Apple.
Through a publication in his blog specialized, Cryptography Engineering, Matthew Green, the expert of Johns Hopkins, criticized them layers of security available for developers in contrast with iOS, where, although is has left behind the vulnerable Full-Disk Encryption (FDE):
If you’re the optimistic type of people, you say that Android is clearly moving in the right direction. And although there is still much work to do, even the implementation half of the protection system files that are currently used in Android-based is better than the last generation of the FDE encryption.
But on the other hand, it is possible to notice that this is a standard enough low. In other words, in 2016 Android still is is fighting for deploy an encryption that achieve the levels of security that Apple discovered makes six years. And they are not even doing well. That does not bode well for long-term users of Android security.
Literally, Green points out that Apple is six years ahead in regards to their safety, if compared to Android. This attributed to several factors, including the four levels of security that iOS offers its developers and the legacy applications that come dragging of earlier versions and that are vulnerable.
