In a new patent filed by Apple and Samsung, it appears the company may have found a way to bypass the encryption feature of the RRS233 codec, which is commonly used to store audio data.
Apple’s patent describes how it uses a “digital fingerprint” to identify the digital transmission and transmission process as the codec is designed to.
The fingerprint is embedded in the codec, enabling the codec to be recognized by any application that needs to communicate data between a client and a server, as opposed to the standard encryption method, where the digital fingerprint is not used.
This could allow criminals to extract data from the codec in a way that would otherwise be impossible, as long as the data is encrypted, according to the patent filing.
In a statement, Apple said the patent was filed for by the company to “help ensure a smooth transition for our users.”
“Apple has been working closely with industry partners and industry partners in the development of the technology,” Apple said.
“We believe that the RDS232 codec is one of the safest codecs on the market, and we are actively working to support that with support for multiple encryption algorithms, such as RSA, AES, HMAC, and CBC.”
The RRS230 codec is commonly referred to as “the devil’s codec” because of its weaknesses.
In addition to the encryption of audio data, the codec also has the ability to decode images and videos, and is also designed to provide data protection for users’ files.
Apple has previously filed patents for its own “coding engine” which can be used to improve the efficiency of data transmission and encryption.
However, the technology is proprietary, and Apple’s patent for a new “crypto engine” for the RLS232 codec does not appear to have been submitted to the US Patent and Trademark Office for review.
