Lockpicking Forensics

Post by Someone » Fri Aug 24, 2018 11:21 am

Hello,

I just found out about this website : http://www.lockpickingforensics.com/
by watching this Defcon talk : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHE9NnPOH4M
I didn't know that you could determine whether or not a lock has been picked/bumped/impressioned.

I thought you guys might find this interesting.

This is some CSI-tier shit. Although how many people would bother pulling their locks apart to find out?
We are all books containing thousands of pages and within each lies an irreparable truth.
What is locked, can be opened. What is hidden, can be found. What is yours... can be mine.

It is pretty unlikely that people would start disassembling their locks because of this, but I found a site there that would be useful for some oppers:

Thanks for the link.
Yeah, it’s pretty unlikely that they would do that, but for riskier ops, maybe.

It'd be useful to know in case you ever suspect someone's broken into your house.
