A talk from EMF 2016 by Matt Smith

A rare view into the darker arts of locksmithing. From prison breaks to secret tools, the murky world of the criminal is explored.

Lockpicking, the original hack, has been around since locks themselves. As security devices, locks, and the circumvention thereof, is a black hat's dream come true. Their methods and tools are shrouded in secrecy and folklore.

Please note there is no (currently classified) sensitive material or techniques revealed but there will be previously unpublished information. It will not be a practical lesson in theft (sorry).
