Deviant Ollam - Safe to Armed in Seconds: A Study of Epic Fails of Popular Gun Safes
Hackers like guns. Hackers like locks. Hackers like to tinker with guns and locks. And, most of the time, hackers protect their guns with high-quality locks. However, while it's one thing to own a nice gun safe protected by a high security dial, that sort of solution tends to be best for the firearms that one doesn't have in daily use. Many of us who wear a firearm as part of our daily routine opt to store and secure our carry piece in a separate, more easily-accessible way at the end of the day. This talk is an in-depth evaluation of some of the most popular small firearm lockboxes in-use today. Some rely on mechanical locks, others on biometric locks, and some offer a combination of both. But overall, they tend to fail miserably in the face of any dedicated attacker. Come and learn how your favorite gun lockbox might be preventing your toddler from having an accidental discharge, but why it's not at all likely to repel a criminal or even perhaps a curious teenager. Means of both attacking as well as improving upon the lockboxes you already may own will be demonstrated, and audience members will be invited to participate in all sorts of attacks... live and on stage!

Biometrics should be identity not password. There should always be a second step.

Yes, teach your kids to be curious. Teach them that things don't 'just happen'. Something makes things happen, and if they try, they can figure out what makes those things happen.
Probably the most important thing they can learn in their lives.

Even a lot of those "safes" that may have nice locks but the construction of the rest of the safe of poor.

Did you guys ever try to wet any of the fingerprints? I remember Mythbusters had (I assume) a pretty crappy reader that didn't like the paper, but as soon as it was wet, it was good. It's possible that the gel that worked conducted enough electricity to the scanner in order for the scanner to register that something was there.

My guess for the 'life sensing' on the optical sensor would be a process very similar to what is used in Pulse Oximetry. The haemoglobin in blood reflects/absorbs the red light of the optical sensor in pulses. By measuring the pulse of light the unit can discern whether an object with essentially a pulse is on the sensor. All of the mediums you used that were opaque blocked the light. The translucent gel allowed the light to pass through, be absorbed by your finger and pass the life check.

Imagine finding all these talks really interesting, but living in they Abloy country.

What I've always found interesting, is the fact that some the earliest locksmiths were also gunsmiths

From watching his talks on getting around different things I have learned that looking everywhere else around it works really well

You know it's going to be a good one when the speaker feels comfortable.

I opened one of those sentry safes with a fork as a young teen

Is there a playlist somewhere with every defcon speech in order oldest to newest?

When in highschool, a kid used one of those cheap ass gun cable locks to "lock" his bike. One day at lunch I picked it with just a paperclip and locked it around his handlebars lol. Surprised me how stupid simple that lock is.

Living in a country where every lock is ABLOY, one has to use different methods. It is much easier to go thru than to pick. Doorframes are not always able to withstand few tons of force... windows are always just windows and stupid wafer locks are still the favorite box lock. But at least it is has been a nice feeling to know that my door is unpickable by 99% of lock pickers.

The Lock SAF probably uses a pulse oxygen sensor in addition to the fingerprint sensor which would not work with opaque molds.
