France Says Apple Bluetooth Policy Is Blocking Virus Tracker

“Apple and Alphabet Inc.’s Google are developing their own technology to help build contact-tracing apps. Their platform should become available to governments and public health authorities everywhere next month, according to an official in the French minister’s office. Still, the French are banking on a home-grown solution. France’s conflict with Apple is part of a broader debate about how much data such apps should collect and who should have access to it.”

CCC | 10 requirements for the evaluation of « Contact Tracing » apps

Header

“In principle, the concept of a « Corona App » involves an enormous risk due to the contact and health data that may be collected. At the same time, there is a chance for « privacy-by-design » concepts and technologies that have been developed by the crypto and privacy community over the last decades. With the help of these technologies, it is possible to unfold the epidemilogical potential of contact tracing without creating a privacy disaster. For this reason alone, all concepts that violate or even endanger privacy must be strictly rejected. In the following, we outline social and technical minimum requirements for such technologies. The CCC sees itself in an advisory and observation role in this debate. We will not recommend specific apps, concepts or procedures. We however advise against the use of apps that do not meet these requirements.”
