The Chain Of Trust In Apple's Devices, by Kirk McElhearn, Intego

If you use Apple devices, the company has its own chain of trust that allows you to use multiple devices in concert. Each link of this chain is carefully designed to ensure its reliability, and each link also enhances other links in the chain. This can seem complex, but when you break it down into its component parts, it's a lot easier to understand.
