Bloomberg Identifies FBI’s iPhone-Cracking Partner: Cellebrite

Yaacov Benmeleh, reporting for Bloomberg:

The FBI was already a Cellebrite client before this project, the people said, who asked not to be identified as the matter is private. Cellebrite, founded in 1999, is a unit of Japan’s Sun Corporation. Sun Corp.’s shares are up almost 40 percent since March 21 when U.S. authorities said a third party had demonstrated a way to get into the iPhone.

Interesting that their share price would move so much on this.
