Copying Keys from Pictures of them


I think I’ve shared a DeviantOllam video or two here before. LOVE his stuff! He does a mix of pen testing, locksmithing, elevator hacking, firearms training, scotch tasting, DIY projects, and social commentary videos. We’ve not yet met in person, but someday I’ll change that and I’m sure we’ll have a fun time.

Here’s a 5min video of him having a fun time showing how a picture of a key can become a key. And it’s surprisingly simple using some dirt cheap tools. I’m not a locksmith and I don’t play one on the internet, but I like to geek out on stuff like this — and raise consciousness about basic security.
