Summary : Lockpicking is becoming popular as a sport/hobby among hackers throughout the world. In a special two-hour session the joy of lockpicking will be explained and demonstrated, from basic techniques to the state of the art. A whole range of new tools and tricks will be covered. Many stories will be told including that of Matt discovering a vulnerability in MasterKey systems as well as the members of Toool (The Open Organization of Lockpickers - http://www.toool.nl) discovering a severe vulnerability in a European lock. This forced a major European lock manufacturer to shut down the factory for a few days and collect a lot of locks from shops.
In addition to this panel, a lockpicking workshop will be ongoing throughout the conference. And at the end of it all, a lockpicking championship will take place.
