DIY Non-Destructive Entry

A session at Defcon 19

Ever leave the house without your picks only to find yourself in a situation where you desperately need them? Well, never fear! I'm going to explain how to open everything from cars, to briefcases to safes with objects as common as Popsicle sticks and unconventional as palm sanders. Every attack will be fully explained so you understand the underlying mechanisms and how we are taking advantage of mechanical tolerances and design flaws to own these locks.
