Secret lab for $ 90 million hacking iPhones

This is how they hide the mobiles.

New York has funded a research project with a goal: to access information on the iPhone of people under investigation.

The FBI said no to iCloud encryption
The lab includes hardware that will be very ahead of its time and teams of ex-military and technology experts.

Thousands of mobiles are currently hacking into the lab which completely isolates them to avoid being remotely washed.

Apple started making it really hard for the FBI and other police organizations after introducing support for six-digit number codes in 2015 - then increased opportunities from 10,000 possible combinations to 1 million.

Apple does not have access
The hacking, or brute force method if you will, involves the machines trying tens of thousands of number password combinations.

In an attempt to speed up the process, the machines are fed with information the investigators are sitting on, such as. birthdays. Not least, this is important as iOS only allows x number of attempts per minute.

In addition, all mobiles are being investigated with a proprietary tool to determine which of them could be candidates for hacking with new holes that Apple has not been able to close. This enables the security experts to find exactly which devices can be fooled through an older back door.

- They should implement a secret back door
Cy Vance Jr, the project manager, has little left over for Apple and believes they should develop a secret backdoor (Tim Cook's defense is as always: criminals will want to find the back door):

"They're on my phone all the time because they upgrade operating systems and send me messages," he says.

Apple, for its part, uses privacy in marketing to assure customers that they retain personal information.
