Cryptographic Libraries

From the webpage:

The same libraries that secure iOS and OS X are available to third‑party developers to help them build advanced security features.

If you are requesting or implementing new features for a product, make cryptography a top priority.

Why?

The more strong legacy cryptography that is embedded into software if and when the feds decide on a position on cryptography the better.

Or put another way, the more secure your data, the harder for legislation to force you to make it less secure.

Word to the wise?

I first saw this in a tweet by Matthew J. Weaver.
