  1. https://9to5mac.com/2022/04/29/cellebrite-iphone-cracking/ Cellebrite iPhone cracking kit allows the company’s clients to access virtually all of the private data stored on a phone – in some cases, even if the phone is locked. But the exact capabilities depend on both the model of the iPhone and the version of iOS it is running. We managed to get access to the user documentation for a recent version of the kit to see what it can do …
  2. https://www.engadget.com/the-uk-government-is-reportedly-planning-ad-campaign-attacking-end-to-end-encryption-101610703.html The UK government plans to team up with charities and law enforcement agencies on a public relations blitz created by M&C Saatchi advertising agency, the report states. The aim of the campaign is to relay a message that end-to-end encryption could hamper efforts to curb child exploitation online.
  3. https://www.forensicfocus.com/news/oxygen-forensics-has-once-again-increased-support-for-encrypted-apps/ Oxygen Forensics, a global leader in digital forensics for law enforcement, federal agencies, and corporate clients, announced today the release of the latest version to their all-in-one forensic solution, Oxygen Forensic® Detective. With new screen lock bypass methods, support for new apps, and upgrades to multiple existing tools, this release ultimately grants investigators more access to secured data.
  4. https://www.bbc.com/news/business-58537599 The Metropolitan Police commissioner has accused tech giants of making it harder to identify and stop terrorists. The tech giants' focus on end-to-end encryption was making it "impossible in some cases" for the police to do their jobs, Dame Cressida Dick wrote in the Telegraph on Saturday. What do people think? I've never been her biggest fan and I really dislike her assumption that law enforcement should automatically have the capability to access whatever they want, although I understand why any police officer might like to have that capability.
  5. "Law enforcement agencies across Europe, the US, and Oceania revealed Anom’s origins earlier today, saying they had arrested 800 criminal suspects based on intercepted communications." Interesting piece. The police have taken down encrypted messaging apps in the past, seized servers etc, but this seems to be the first time they have actually set up their own specific app from the beginning with this intention. It functioned as most encrypted messaging apps do, except hidden away in the code was a secret master key that allowed the police to decrypt any of the messages. This shows the dangers in trusting any encryption software that doesn't let you inspect the code, you can never be sure what it's really doing. By comparison, Signal has none of the fancy snake oil marketing that many encrypted messengers do but the source code is freely available, has been thoroughly inspected by cryptographers for stuff like this, and is likely a far safer bet for secure communications.
  6. These days a lot of people use stuff like Tor (a browser which conceals their location and identity) and end-to-end encryption (which scrambles messages so they can't be intercepted). The second one is included by default in WhatsApp and some other popular messaging apps. VPN's also seem to be ubiquitous, whether for privacy or simply because Netflix have rubbish choices if you have a British IP address. In this day and age when just about everything is online, how does usage of stuff like this affect and factor into police work? Does it make people look inherently suspicious just by using these technologies?
