We Need to Start Attacking Disc Detainer Locks

A session at ShmooCon 2012 Firetalks

Saturday 29th January, 2011

8:45pm to 8:45pm (EST)

Disc Detainer locks have been around for 100+ years, but until recently few in the US were even aware of them. Over the last 5 years low-end disc detainers have flooded the bicycle and motorcycle lock market. Now you can even find cheap disc detainer padlocks at truck stops with “HIGH SECURITY” emblazoned on the packaging. There are high security disc detainer locks out there, but that’s not what we’re getting from these companies. This talk will cover the basics of how these locks operate, simple picking instructions and I’ll introduce the early stages of a brute force dialer I’m building.
