Video: Watch Apple and the FBI face-off in Congress

Apple and the FBI are testifying before the US House of Representatives Judiciary Committee today.

The hearing is titled: The Encryption Tightrope: Balancing Americans’ Security and Privacy, and will serve to let the committee members ask the parties questions on encryption, but particularly the San Bernardino unlocking case that has the FBI and Apple heading to court later this month.

FBI Director James Comey is up first, and Apple General Counsel Bruce Sewell will follow. Of note, Comey said that decision in the San Bernardino unlocking case could influence other decisions down the line, though he reiterated the government’s argument the FBI’s request is about one specific case.
