One of the roadblocks that Apple has faced in entering the enterprise market has been its perceived lack of security when compared to competitors such as RIM’s Blackberry phones. With iOS 4, Apple released hardware encryption to keep all of the data on your portable device safe and secure and even allowed third party developers to use the encryption APIs for more protection. Now, according to Geek.com, a Russian security and audit company has managed to circumvent the encryption layer leaving all of your personal data at risk. http://www.neowin.net/news/company-finds-way-to-bypass-apples-ios-encryption http://www.geek.com/articles/chips/apples-ios-4-hardware-encryption-has-been-cracked-20110525/ ElcomSoft offer this iOS 4 forensic toolkit to security and law enforcement agencies, but anyone can purchase the software to extract the encrypted data on a device. The application is called the ElcomSoft Phone Password Breaker and costs around $320 for the Professional edition. The speed of decryption on a home PC depends on your setup with Password Breaker supporting up to 32 CPUs and 8 GPUs.
