Through the application of the All Writs Act of 1789, a Riverside, California court has ordered Apple to assist the government in unlocking the iPhone of San Bernardino shooter Syed Rizwan Farook. The FBI is seeking information that may be on Farook's employer-issued phone as it investigates the Dec. 2 shootings that left 14 people dead.

But what is the FBI really asking for? And what is really at stake if Apple is forced to comply? APU’s security expert, Shawn Kohrman, looks at the implications of this court order and how it could affect each of us.
