Deviant Ollam – Distinguishing Lockpicks: Raking vs Lifting vs Jiggling and More Derbycon 2011 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Deviant Ollam – Distinguishing Lockpicks: Raking vs Lifting vs Jiggling and More
Derbycon 2011

There are a number of different companies producing lockpicks. One thing that has been a significant source of confusion among lockpickers is the multitude of names that exist for all of the pick tools in common use today. Some pick tools are known by as many as five separate names… a fact that can cause no end of headaches when discussing tool kits among friends or attempting to place orders for picks from suppliers. Do you know what makes one pick “standard” and another “euro” style? Do you know that the tool one catalog calls a “C Rake” might be known as “Double Rake” by another supplier and a “Three Quarter Rake” somewhere else… even while all lockpickers simply call it a “Snake”. The confusion over lockpick /names/ has led to great misunderstanding with regard to their /use/. Many people are unaware of the specific means by which many of the tools in their own kits are best used. This talk will help sort out some of that confusion and demonstrate a variety of useful techniques for lockpicking, some of which you may have never considered… eventhough you have owned the necessary equipment all along.
