Report reveals law enforcement's secret tool for stealing your iPhone passcode
It's one thing to use a tool that cracks an Apple iPhone passcode using brute force. With this method, a cracking tool can go through every possible combination for a six-digit passcode in hours. A couple of years ago, John Hopkins Information Security Institute professor cryptographer Matthew Green calculated that by using a GrayKey machine such a task would take as long as 11 hours. However, its another thing for a forensics tool to remember the passcode by storing it as the user types in each number digit by digit.
