Eventbrite - AREA41 2018 Security Conference


Lockpickers promote improvements in physical security and aid consumers in making suitable decisions about their own security. Accordingly, those who choose to participate in locksports often seek to discover security vulnerabilities and notify them to lock manufacturers and in some cases to the public. At the core of locksport is the belief in responsible full disclosure. Locksport enthusiasts combat the philosophy of "security through obscurity" that unfortunately is still common within the locksmith industry and lock manufacturers.
