Apple is working to strengthen iCloud encryption so that it won't be able to access information you've backed up to iCloud, reports the WSJ.

Apple executives are wrestling with how to strengthen iCloud encryption without inconveniencing users. Apple prides itself on creating intuitive, easy-to-use software, and some in the company worry about adding complexity.

One issue is that if a user forgets his or her password and Apple doesn't have the key, the user might lose access to their important data and photos. However, if Apple does keep a key, it could be compromised or the company could be compelled to turn it over.

The dilemma is similar to the physical world where tighter security means more obstacles such as locks or codes, etc.

The timing on the move to stronger iCloud encryption is uncertain. The WSJ notes that it took Box three years to design a system that would encrypt corporate data without the company being able to access it, while still offering popular features such as document preview.

Apple is set to face off against the FBI in court on March 22nd. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
