Does Apple use one global encryption key or one key per user, derived from the user's identity/credentials?


We would love to enable iCloud backup and other sync features.

However our security/risk people want to make sure that even Apple does not have access to the un-encrypted user's data that is inside iCloud.




iPad 2, iOS 5.0.1
