I’ll say, knowing a bit about how iPhone security systems work, these guys would need to compromise the SEP in order for them to unlock locked iPhones and extract data, esp on newer ones, especially since they need to use the UID key that’s fused within the SEP to get that data.
Knowing that, if these guys have compromised the SEP, it’s seriously bad news for security of user data. If they haven’t, it’s likely a bug that’s either caching or not properly discarding the keybag user keys on lock. If this works when the device is rebooted, very likely the former scenario.
I'm skeptical that the bug will persist. It's cool that you found yet another bug in iOS that works for the next few days though at least. This just seems like a ploy to get a contract to keep funding their research.
There is no reason to believe the"flaws" that allow access aren't deliberate. What evidence is there that shows these methods are not known at release by Apple and other interested parties? Why should we believe that this is not simply a ruse or diversion? These are devices and systems with proprietary code, huge profit motives for those involved, political impact etc.
I'm done trusting technology companies. I hold a Masters in digital Forensics and have worked in information systems for over 20 years.
That’s not true.
> Even in places far removed from the border, deep into the interior of the country, immigration officials enjoy broad—though not limitless—powers. Specifically, federal regulations give U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) authority to operate within 100 miles of any U.S. "external boundary."
> In this 100-mile zone, Border Patrol agents have certain additional authorities. For instance, Border Patrol can operate immigration checkpoints. Border Patrol, nevertheless, cannot pull anyone over without "reasonable suspicion" of an immigration violation or crime (reasonable suspicion is more than just a "hunch"). Similarly, Border Patrol cannot search vehicles in the 100-mile zone without a warrant or "probable cause" (a reasonable belief, based on the circumstances, that an immigration violation or crime has likely occurred).
You didn't include the **VERY** next paragraph.
>In practice, Border Patrol agents routinely ignore or misunderstand the limits of their legal authority in the course of individual stops, resulting in violations of the constitutional rights of innocent people. These problems are compounded by inadequate training for Border Patrol agents, a lack of oversight by CBP and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the consistent failure of CBP to hold agents accountable for abuse. No matter what CBP officers and Border Patrol agents think, our Constitution applies throughout the United States, including within this “100-mile border zone.”
How is it crazy? If a law is not enforced, it isn't consequential.
Sort of like how everyone sneezes in public without even attempting to cover their nose and/or mouth. Illegal in just about every state and punishable by fine. No one has been fined for it in ages. So people do it without care, because nothing is going to happen to them.
Here, you could argue that if evidence obtained without a warrant made it to court, it would absolutely be thrown out. Yet, Riley v. California happened. I'm sure there are others as well. One case is enough to prove that it doesn't always work the way it is supposed to.
In general, be courteous to others. Attack ideas, not users. Personal insults, shill or troll accusations, hate speech, any advocating or wishing death/physical harm, and other rule violations can result in a permanent ban.

Can't you just turn on the wipe your phone if incorrect pass x times setting? just tap a number rapidly a few times to erase. I guess a cop would probably stop you before you could do it enough times though.
