comment How to secure a local socket?
It's true that OP has not written a service, but that's how the Android security model works. There's no reason the application can't implement the same interface; otherwise, it may as well throw out the whole "Android" component, and treat it as standard Linux.

comment How to secure a local socket?
"Core service" isn't Android jargon (it seems to be iOS?); is it an application running as a Service (developer.android.com/guide/components/services.html) or did you root the device, and are running it below the application layer? (source.android.com/devices/tech/security/index.html)

comment Authentication on client server
"Using OAuth 2.0 as an authentication protocol carries a handful of security implications" - what are (a few of) these implications, exactly?

comment Can the FBI or government agencies decrypt my hardrive and/or force me to give them the password?
The point w.r.t. borders seems to be a strange extrapolation from the linked EFF article (which my answer also cited). A 2004 Supreme Court ruling (US v Flores-Montano) found that the 4th Amendment does not hold as strongly when weighed against border security; however, it's moot because the password/decryption compulsion has to do with the 5th Amendment protection against self-incrimination, rather than the 4th.

comment Enterprise message bus encryption
I think we probably need more context on your application. Also, where does Amazon say that contents are not encrypted?

comment What is the cost of CALEA in the US? (Lawful intercept)
Note - I see that you're a new moderator. You might want to ease off, and let the community decide which questions it is inclined to answer, and grow organically, rather than force it in the Schroeder Direction.

comment What is the cost of CALEA in the US? (Lawful intercept)
"Is there an estimate of the cumulative cost" - this is sufficiently vague to allow your interpretation (technically, it's a yes/no question!); or you could have edited it as such. I realize this is all moot, since in your dictatorial mod power you've shut down this line of inquiry, but you might want to think again about such a policy, if you want this site to thrive.

comment What is the cost of CALEA in the US? (Lawful intercept)
Sorry, but would you mind pointing me in the direction of the guideline that places the economics of security policies as off-topic? It doesn't appear to be mentioned at all on the page you linked in your close vote.

comment What is the cost of CALEA in the US? (Lawful intercept)
I'm not sure how this doesn't qualify as in-scope, on the topics of "risk management" and "policies"; not to mention that other questions have been asked re: security laws/policies. If your objection is that the answer is: "It's unknowable", feel free to post that as an answer! Though some further thoughtful analysis on the topic could be valuable.
