Apple appears to have removed iCloud Keychain support from the iOS 7 Golden Master (GM), which was seeded to developers yesterday. First introduced at WWDC, iCloud Keychain is Applea€™s new cross-device password manager, designed to share and store passwords across all of Applea€™s products running iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks. A little irked, but then again I suppose for passwords I would prefer they take their time. At the same time though, I have to admit that working hard on security, passwords and fingerprints during a time when more and more news of the level to which the NSA has been utilizing those resources really diminishes the impact of those advances.
After their developer program breach I'm a little uneasy storing such information with them anyway. Next version of iOS with overhauled notifications, lock screen, Messages, Apple Music, and much more. Netflix has released the soundtracks for both its popular sci-fi series Stranger Things, and its new musical drama The Get Down, exclusively on iTunes and Apple Music. Sonos is a well-regarded brand known for creating some of the best multi-room home speaker setups, and in late 2015, the company debuted its latest product, a second-generation Play:5.
Apple has recently added Australian streaming service Stan to the universal search function on the fourth-generation Apple TV, marking the first third-party service outside of the U.S. Apple might be looking to further expand its presence in Seattle, Washington following its acquisition of Seattle-based machine learning and artificial intelligence startup Turi.
Mavericks, poza wieloma innymi praktycznymi ulatwieniami, wprowadza do spolki z iOS 7, bardzo ciekawa funkcje – iCloud Keychain. Warto tez zwrocic uwage na to, ze 1Password wspiera rowniez Windows i Androida i synchronizujemy je wszystkie wtedy poprzez Dropboxa. Problem bedzie wtedy, kiedy uzytkownik nie bedzie mial pod reka sprzetu Apple i zechce sie zalogowac z komputera PC z Windows lub Linux-em. Z Readability (wczesniej Instapaper) korzystalem od dawna poniewaz czemus mi to sluzylo i bylo potrzebne.
Polecam sprawdzic Dashlane – moim zdaniem o wiele lepsze niz 1 Password, chociaz cenie ich pionierstwo i piekny design appek.
Of the many announcements Apple made last week, the news about iCloud Keychain seemed fairly minor.
Obviously, having many complex passwords creates a new problem: How do you remember them all? If you've ever used a password manager, you can see how they're a great solution to the multi-password problem. A couple of months ago Google brought password syncing to the mobile version of Chrome for Android (but not iOS), and last week Apple said it would be doing the same thing with Safari via iCould Keychain. That approach has clear advantages over a password manager, since Apple and Google prevent those services from integrating with mobile browsers.
Nonetheless, Apple re-introducing password syncing (it was actually a feature of the old MobileMe service that was discontinued in 2011) could have a big impact on the hundreds of millions of iOS users, many of which may not be inclined to use a third-party password manager. However, third-party password managers have a trump card: They're cross-platform, meaning you can access your stored passwords from any device with either a web browser on an app. Do you think Apple's done a good job with iCloud Keychain, and do you think you'll use it instead of a third-party password manager?
Few features in OS X Mavericks will fundamentally change your computing experience as much as iCloud Keychain. You need secure login credentials to be able to engage in e-commerce and other online activities, but keeping passwords straight can stump even the most advanced computer user.
Apple provides a handy and secure way to deal with this problem already, but it's somewhat hidden from view: the Keychain app in the Utilities folder. Web site password utilities are nothing new to OS X - they've been around for years, but they require users to know of their existence.
Are you going to use iCloud Keychain when you download Mavericks, or is this more control than you're willing to give the operating system?

Apple has released a massive update to its “iOS Security” white paper for IT professionals.
The paper is incredibly dense, even getting to the level of detail of which flavor of particular encryption algorithms are used in which security controls.
While strong, random passwords are essential for protecting your digital life, if you were to lose them, you’d be locked out of everything. Apple uses different, but related, security methods to protect both keychain syncing and keychain escrow and recovery (backup). Secure Sync -- When you sync your keychain, Apple doesn’t actually keep a master copy in iCloud. When a new device is approved, the same process happens on that device, and the approved public key is signed and added to the circle of trust on each device and in iCloud (using yet more encryption).
When passwords are added or changed, Apple syncs only the individual keychain items to other devices that need the update, one at a time. To read it, an attacker would need to compromise both the key of the receiving device and your iCloud password. Apple could technically subvert the process, for malicious reasons or at the behest of a large government agency, but not easily, not without changing the architecture (the notification and approval piece), and not without incurring serious legal liability now that the details have been published. Secure Recovery -- Unlike sync, which sends only one keychain item at a time, iCloud Keychain Recovery does back up your entire keychain in iCloud. Apple created a secure escrow service to handle this complex process in a highly secure way. This gets a little complicated, but the easy way to think about it is that only the HSM can read the key encrypted with the iCloud Security Code, but since it doesn’t store the iCloud Security Code, it can’t read the actual key used to protect the keychain.
The recovery process also requires your phone number, since Apple sends a text message you must reply to as part of the recovery process.
Just to be safe, Apple destroyed the administrator access cards for the HSMs, and set them to delete all the keys if any unauthorized access is detected. How to NSA-proof Keychain Recovery -- Despite all this, there is still the possibility Apple could, at the behest of law enforcement agencies, modify the process or compromise the HSMs and use that to access keychains and all the stored passwords.
The reason for the HSMs is that neither a four-digit value for the iCloud Security Code (the default), nor a long user code (a second option), is good enough to generate a cryptographically sound key, because there simply isn’t enough entropy.
Apple thus added a third option to allow your device to generate a cryptographically secure iCloud Security Code. When you do this, your device generates a totally random iCloud Security Code that contains so much entropy that you don’t need the HSMs, since it is theoretically impossible to break via brute force using current (and foreseeable) techniques and technology.

This entire process is impressive, with options to satisfy even the most paranoid, and it’s reassuring to see Apple putting so much thought and effort into maintaining the security of our data. There are many more interesting details in the full iOS Security white paper that we hope to share with you in the future. It's an option when setting up iCloud Keychain - I've added more explicit directions and a screenshot to the article.
If you already turned on iCloud Keychain, go to Account Details in iCloud Preferences, there is a button for it. If you reset the login password without the original that keychain is locked and no longer accessible. That's exactly why most companies never bother with all this security - with HSMs, et cetera. How does the third option (using a cryptographically secure iCloud Security Code) work without the HSM? In my experience iCloud isn't very reliable and it's next to impossible to troubleshoot since a lot of things are deliberately hidden from the user.So why should I entrust the most sensitive part of my digital life to iCloud?
IIRC you need to set a screensaver password (or password to wake from sleep) for that to become available. Steve Gibson recently did an analysis of the Apple security document in today's Security Now (listening to it live, it should hit the podcast feed later tonight) According to him, Apple used the weak Elliptic Curve algorithm that was allegedly inserted into the standard by the NIST at the behest of the NSA. In addition to passwords, iCloud Keychain also stores website logins, credit card information, and Wi-Fi networks.
For something as significant as passwords, I'd rather they get it right the first time than rush out something to make a deadline. Jej zadanie jest bardzo zblizone do 1Password, z ktorego korzystam osobiscie – zapamietuje w bezpieczny sposob nasze loginy, hasla, karty kredytowe i inne dane, aby moc je wprowadzic przy minimalnym wysilku. Wystarczy zapisac haslo i login lub jakiekolwiek inne dane, ktore potrafi przetrzymac, aby po chwili moc sie zalogowac na innym urzadzeniu.
Potrafi zapisywac login i hasla, dane osobowe do formularzy wraz z numerami kart kredytowych i to w zasadzie tyle. Mozesz korzystac, ale nawet jesli tego nie robisz nie ma balaganu, to gdzies jest, ale nie przeslania podstawowych tresci.
After all, senior vice president of of software engineering Craig Federighi spent just 1:20 on it at Apple's WWDC keynote. We all know we should use different, hard-to-crack passwords for the many services we use every day, yet few people do so.
Writing them down is a security risk, not to mention ridiculously low-tech (Apple open mocked it to much laughter in the keynote). These services can integrate directly with web browsers, automatically logging you in once you're logged into their service via a master password. Once the feature becomes available in the fall with OS X Mavericks and iOS 7, users will be able to access the same set of passwords via mobile and desktop versions of Safari. Instead, users must either access the password manager site on the browser, log in with their master password, and then copy and paste every password, or instead download an app — which is essentially the same procedure in a mobile-friendly interface.
In addition, is ability to suggest and save hard-to-crack passwords might finally ensure no one uses "password" or "12345" for any login again. So far, no platform or service offers any kind of password manager that can log you into apps, as opposed to webpages. Powered by its own proprietary technology, Mashable is the go-to source for tech, digital culture and entertainment content for its dedicated and influential audience around the globe. At best, you forget and need to reset your password every time you visit an infrequently-accessed site. Keychain, integrated well into the operating system itself, keeps track of credentials like AirPort passwords, root certificates, RSA encryption keys and more. The only piece of information you will have to remember is the security code that's imprinted on the back side of your card.
By offering iCloud Keychain as an alternative, Apple is exposing the same kind of technology to everyone who downloads OS X Mavericks when it comes out this fall.

It contains more information on iOS security than Apple has ever shared publicly before, including extensive details on Touch ID, Data Protection, network security, application security, and nearly all security-related features, options, and protective controls.
For security professionals like myself, this is like waking up and finding a pot of gold sitting on my keyboard. I will likely be digesting it for months, but one particular section contained an important nugget that explains why the NSA can’t snoop on your iCloud Keychain passwords. It is thus in Apple’s interest to ensure that these passwords sync consistently, and that they are as protected from loss as is possible, for both you and Apple. Especially with recent fears of government snooping, trusting the keys to your digital life to a large company is a daunting prospect. The first device to enter the circle of trust (like an iPhone) creates a syncing identity using paired public and private keys (called asymmetric cryptography, which is very well understood and widely used). This is tied to notifications sent to existing devices in the circle and yet more cryptographic signing (and your iCloud password) to ensure someone can’t cheat the process and register their own device. In other words, each keychain item is sent only to each device that needs it, the item is encrypted so only that device can read it, and only one item at a time passes through iCloud. If the right conditions are met, the HSM (actually a cluster of HSMs in case one breaks) will release the key, which can then be decrypted with the iCloud Security Code. It took me a while to figure this out, despite Apple’s clear documentation and the fact that I earn my living in part by advising HSM vendors. You also need your iCloud username and password to request a recovery, and your iCloud Security Code to unlock your keys.
Then, all users are sent a notification to re-enroll before they lose their keys, and re-enrolling moves them to a different HSM cluster.
I rarely see this level of security, and it’s especially rare to destroy the administrative smart cards required to access the HSM.
However, thanks to the destruction of the admin access cards, this could only affect new enrollments. Apple was worried that someone could guess your iCloud Security Code, and the HSMs and key escrow process defend against that. Select this option and the original random key protecting your keychain is wrapped with a key generated using this random iCloud Security Code, is never sent to Apple, and can’t be intercepted.

The iCloud keychain unlocks with your login password on OS X; you can't set a separate password for it. You can also disable syncing of login and keychain passwords in the keychain access' preferences.This also happens if you migrate a login keychain to a new machine where you've set another login password. I am sure glad Apple does; it's one of those things where they really did not have to do that but did it anyway because Apple cares about their user's data, even if the users themselves don't.
Is the original random key, encrypted using this random iCloud Security Code, sent to Apple?
Plus, after the recent SSL blunder, I have great doubt that Apple really takes security serious.
Seeing these interprations and background info really opens my eye.But what is a random super-long key worth, when the NSA asks Apple to put in a hook into IOS to grab the key from the device? No security is unbreakable, no entity completely trustworthy, and if any governing agency requires companies to have secret backdoors, it's all moot. However, I do not have a box to enable "Allow AutoFill even for websites that request passwords not to be saved".
I have always had it set to immediately require a password after sleep or screen saver begins. I think that even if this particular curve could be broken by an attacker, he could inspect the public keys of all devices in that circle, but not add his own device.Additionally, he might be able to forge requests to be a part of that circle. Jesli po jakims czasie zdecydujecie, ze nie jest to dla Was wystarczajace narzedzie to wtedy mozecie bez problemow kupic 1Password i nie zalowac wydanych pieniedzy. Jesli wymagasz czegos wiecej to instalujesz do tego odpowiednie oprogramowanie, a Apple wychodzi tylko na przeciw podstawowym wymaganiom.
Na szczescie ciagle swietnie mi dziala wersja kupiona przed pojawieniem sie 1Password w iTunes. Tak wiec mozemy synchronizowac wszystko co w takim peku sie znajdzie, hasla, notatki, klucze, certyfikaty.
A recent study found that almost two-thirds of consumers re-use passwords across multiple sites, making them much more vulnerable to a phishing attack. You can put them in an online document, but that assumes you'll always be able to access it and whatever service you're using is secure, plus it involves a lot of copying and pasting. While Apple has shown it's technically possible with its baked-in logins for Facebook and Twitter on the iPhone, this kind of functionality would require integration at the OS level.
At worst, you end up using an insecure password that opens you up to identity theft and other modern problems. Now Apple's extending the Keychain concept in OS X Mavericks by making it iCloud-based, secure, and best of all, synchronized between your iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks devices. Safari will help you generate secure passwords that you don't have to remember - iCloud Keychain fills them in for you whenever they're needed. It's another way that Apple is trying to keep Mac users safe and secure when they're online, and that's a good thing.
Once Mavericks is out in the world I think we'll be able to do a more balanced look at iCloud Keychain vs. Along with some of the most impressive security I’ve ever seen, Apple has provided a way to make it impossible for agencies like the NSA to obtain your iCloud Keychain passwords.
A key pair is generated, the public key is signed by the private key, and then the public key is encrypted by a key derived from your iCloud password. Even a malicious Apple employee would need to compromise the fundamental architecture of iCloud in multiple locations to access your keychain items surreptitiously.
The strong key needed to decrypt it is then itself encrypted with a new iCloud Security Code and the public key of special encryption hardware known as an HSM (Hardware Security Module). So all someone needs to do is get access to your Mac, change the login password (we all know that this is very simple), then they'll have full access to everything in the iCloud password. In that case you need the old password to unlock the login keychain since it's still encrypted with it.
But if it's used as a factor in a decryption key, you can't decrypt the data without the original password.The attack you describe doesn't exist. Throwing all your passwords and private data into the cloud sounds like the setup to a bad joke. Those requests would still need to be confirmed by a device that is already part of that circle.So when it comes to syncing, this is not worse than loosing your iCloud password. Jest to tez narzedzie, ktore dziala z kazda podpisana przez developera przegladarka – na obecna chwile nie obsluguje chyba jedynie Chromium1.
Podejrzewam, ze wiekszosci wystarczy implementacja Apple, ale osobiscie mam zamiar nadal korzystac z 1Password – mnogosc dodatkowych opcji jest dla mnie po prostu przydatna i regularnie z nich korzystam.
Problem moze sie pojawic gdy korzystamy z iOS7 tam dziala tylko to co jest zwiazane z safari – formularze itp bo nie mamy dostepu do peku kluczy. It may come to iCloud Keychain at some point in the future, but once it arrives users will still be stuck copying and pasting passwords — either from Safari's password list or a password manager — to log into apps. The signed circle of trust is placed in iCloud, but your private key never leaves your device. Even stealing your iCloud username and password wouldn’t provide an attacker access to your keychain. In my work as a security analyst, I write a lot about HSMs, which are tamper-resistant, highly secure hardware devices used by banks, governments, and major corporations to manage encryption and keys. If someone tries to compromise your account but fails a few times, your account locks up and the only way to try again is to call Apple support.
It is used only in iCloud Keychain Sync and white paper says that your keychain is not stored in iCloud(until you use keychain escrow, which use different type of encryption).
Taka funkcjonalnosc od dawna ma chociazby 1Password, bez ktorego nie wyobrazam sobie zycia. The attacker would also need a device currently in the circle of trust to approve the new one, and for you to not notice the approval notifications on every other device already in the circle.
After that, 10 failures and the HSM destroys your escrow record, locking your keys away forever. When the pair of keys is created, the public key is signed by your private key (which never leave your device and thus nobody except you could change it) and then encrypted using potentially corupted ECC by your iCloud Password.
In possibility of attacker decrypt it, he gets only your public key(s) which is used for encrypting keychain item in syncing session. Roznica pomiedzy 1Password, a iCloud Keychain pozostanie jednak spora, podobnie jak Reading List w Safari rozni sie od Instapaper czy Pocket.
