The art of lockpicking

Dec 22nd 2015 at 11:40 AM

Lockpicking is a rather strange hobby whereby the users try to open a lock without damaging it. They see the lock as a puzzle waiting to be solved. You can imagine how it might feel when you can out smart something that has It has been designed and redesigned by thousands of people. But yet you can beat it with some skill and determination.


Lockpickers are very passionate about outsmarting the way locks work. First they study and explore the inner workings of locks. And then they try to find vulnarabilities. Not because they want to use it in a practical sense. But because they feel drawn to see how they can outsmart the lock. They see it as a challenge!


The lockpicking and hacking culture

Lockpicking was actually born out of hacking conventions where the hackers shifted there challenges from digital to fysical security systems. In many ways both are very simliar and share mutual basic vulnarabilities. It is also funny to see that allot of the methods that work with hacking also work for lockpickers.
