Physical penetration testing presented at t2 2015

Summary : Your assignment is going great. You're past the reception desk, thanks to your social engineering skills. You made it to the rack that contains the server you are pentesting. But it's locked.. So is the drawer that might hold the key.
With some knowledge and a lot of training, many locks can easily be opened, be it the lock in a 19" rack, a drawer, a lock that is attached to a laptop, etc. In this talk, we will look at the art of lockpicking and how these techniques can be applied to open disc locks (including the Abloy Classic), pin tumbler locks, wafer locks (found in cabinets) and tubular locks (like kensington).
