U.S. officials will provide former FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried with a new phone and a laptop with enhanced security measures. As part of the new bail regulations, the mobile device must be a flip phone or “non-smartphone.” And internet access on the laptop must be restricted to just whitelisted sites.
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) suggests restricting Sam Bankman-Fried’s use of digital devices. According to a letter handed to Judge Lewis Kaplan late on Friday. When SBF utilized a VPN and encrypted messaging applications to communicate with FTX personnel, DOJ prosecutors accused him of witnessing tampering.
Limited Resource Access
Moreover, SBF will be issued a new flip phone capable solely of making and receiving voice calls and SMS messaging. In addition, a brand-new laptop with restricted internet access or whitelisted sites only. The government and court will be given access to the phone and computer’s serial numbers, IMEI numbers, MAC addresses, and IP addresses.
In the document, it is said that he had access to ten different websites while preparing his argument. In addition, 23 sites, including media outlets, streaming services, and delivery services like Netflix, Spotify, Doordash, Uber Eats, Amazon, MLB.com, NFL.com, and more.
Parents of SBF must provide information about their electronic devices to the court and the DOJ to avoid any conflicts of interest. The court’s prior orders on other restrictions are still in effect. This includes prohibiting any contact between SBF and FTX personnel or their close family members without the presence of a solicitor. Likewise, you can’t utilize a virtual private network (VPN) or any kind of encrypted messaging service.
