Marc Weber Tobias, an American investigative attorney and author, presents Insecurity engineering at QCrypt 2013. Traditional mechanical locks have no intelligence and limitations on the security they can offer. Within the past five years, new security technology that integrates electronic credentials with mechanical cylinders have become common in many facilities and in some cases have completely replaced mechanical keys. While these credentials may increase certain aspects of security and user options for access control, they have done little to add to the overall security of most locks, whether electro-mechanical or completely electronic-based. Marc Weber Tobias is an investigative attorney, physical security expert, and Team Leader for a group of physical and cyber security professionals, whose task is to defeat electronic-based locks and to develop covert methods to circumvent their security, including cryptographic credentials, in seconds, without any trace. In this presentation, Marc will discuss why cryptography and the credentials it is designed to protect are largely irrelevant when considering the security of locks and access control systems. Marc will present several video segments that demonstrate a number of techniques that his team at Security Labs has developed in bypassing certain locks in order that participants can understand basic design issues and potential vulnerabilities so they can better protect their facilities and environments.
