What Does the Perfect Door or Padlock Look Like?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

You have spent lots of budget on a high-grade, pick-resistant lock for your door. Your vendor has assured you how it will resist attack and how difficult it would be for someone to copy your key. You've carefully chosen robust and heavy-duty padlocks to secure your critical infrastructure and grounds. Your Plant Ops people feel assured that outsiders wouldn't dare try to pick or smash such a lock open.

Maybe they're right. But... the bulk of real-world attacks that both penetration testers and also criminals attempt against doors and padlocks have little or nothing to do with the locking mechanism itself! This talk will be a hard-hitting exploration (full of photo and video examples) of the ways in which your doors and padlocks -- the most fundamental parts of your physical security -- can possibly be thwarted by someone attempting illicit entry via means that don't involve intricate pick tools or finesse techinques. Bypassing and quick entry are often possible on our physical security hardware due to systemic and simple vulns that we have not yet eradicated. The showcasing of these scary problems will be immediately followed by bulleted lists of simple solutions that are instantly implementable and usually very within-budget.

You, too, can have a near-perfect doors or padlocks... if you're willing to learn and understand the problems that all such hardare tends to have out of the box.
