FBI Releases Name Of Company They Say Will Unlock iPhone for Them

The U.S. Justice Department and Apple were headed for a heated showdown in court over the FBI's demands that Apple create for them a key to unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists. Despite a federal judge's order, Apple said giving the FBI that sort of access would compromise the security of all iPhones, and they were prepared to fight it out in court Tuesday.


Then, Monday night, the U.S. Justice Department asked for the judge to put the court hearing on hold, saying that they had found a third party to hack into the iPhone for them. According to Reuters, that company is Cellebrite, an Israeli forensic software company that is a subsidiary of Japan's Sun Corp. The Cellebrite system is used by intelligence and law enforcement agencies to hack into mobile devices.

Now to see how Apple will respond.
