Here’s a transcript from Security Now that talks about the generic implementation
I’ve only included a snippet.
Steve: Yeah. Okay. So what we know is that Apple and Google have engineers, crypto people; have gotten together and designed something which they are immediately implementing. I think they’re working, both of them, on putting this into APIs on their respective platforms, to which applications can be written. But they’ve also said that, because they recognize that the potential need for contact tracing is not going away anytime soon, they intend to, as soon as they can, submerge this technology into the underlying OS, so contact tracing with this design will be part of both iOS and Android moving forward. So what I want to do is first explain exactly what the technology is, exactly how it works. And then, Leo, you and I will discuss the implications and upsides and downsides and spoofing and all the other things.
