On Wednesday, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation said it did not own the rights to the technical method where a contractor used to unlock an Apple iPhone that is used by one of the shooters of San Bernardino as well as consequently it could not submit all details of the mechanism for an interagency review of government.


  • FBI don't have rights to share Unlocking Method of iPhone.
  • FBI have not identified the person who provided the unlock mechanism for opening the shooter's iPhone.
  • FBI does not have enough technical information about iPhone Vulnerability

According to report of Reuters, Amy S. Hess who is an executive assistant director of FBI for science and technology said in an announcement that when it appointed a party that belongs to outside to unlock the iPhone from that agency which did not acquire the rights to the technique.

As an end result, Hess said,
The FBI does not have enough technical information about any vulnerability in the iPhone to suggest for the review of an interagency.

The review that is being carries out in the secret manner that would decide whether the vulnerability could be opened to the agencies of government or the private sectors.

Whereas the iPhone comes in question that was owned by the San Bernardino County Health Department as well as it was hand over to the employee Syed Farook, who, with his wife Tashfeen Malik, killed 14 people and injured  around the 22 people during an attack on his co-workers last December.

Hess also said the FBI usually does not give any remark on vulnerabilities which were discovered in cyber products. Whereas the agency determined to make a statement due to the "extraordinary nature of this particular case, the intense public interest in it, and the fact that the FBI already has disclosed publicly the existence of the method."

And the statement of Hess established an information from the sources of U.S. government on Tuesday that the conditionally FBI had decided which is not to share the unlocking mechanism of iPhone since the agency did not own it.
