Locks: Basic operation and manipulation
This is a step by step course in the basics of how locks work and how we pick them open.
Physical security isn’t just a concern of the IT world. Besides securing server rooms, locks of all sizes and styles are scattered throughout our lives. However, much of the general public is unaware of the insecurities present in many lock designs. Through discussion and direct example, Deviant Ollam will address the strengths and weaknesses of standard pin tumbler locks, combination locks, warded locks, wafer locks, and more. Discussion of effective tools, advanced techniques, master key theory, and lesser-known picking techniques will also be covered. This talk is aimed at lockpick novices who are interested in better security and learning lockpicking skills. While always the first to admit that he’s no Barry Wels, Deviant hopes to have a good time with this lockpick talk and looks forward to hand-on audience participation. Many styles of practice locks and picks will be made available.
