Meeting Cellebrite – Israel’s master phone crackers

It’s an Israeli company that helps police forces gain access to data on the mobile phones of suspected criminals.
Cellebrite was in the headlines earlier this year when it was rumoured (vociferava) to have helped the FBI to crack an iPhone used by the San Bernardino shooter.
Now the company has told the BBC that it can get (si può ottenere) through (attraverso) the defences of just about any modern smartphone. But the firm refuses (rifiuta) to say whether it supplies its technology to the police forces of repressive regimes.
Last week Cellebrite was showing off its technology to British customers. I was invited to a hotel in the Midlands, where police officers from across the UK had come to see equipment and software that first extracts data from suspects’ phones, then analyses how they interact with others.
