Black Hat: Hotel keycard lock picking in less time than it takes to blink
If you are currently in Las Vegas for the Black Hat or Def Con security conferences, or any hotel for that matter, when you closed and locked your hotel door, heard it click, then you probably believed that you secured your hotel room. Eeenk! It, and four to five million other Onity keycard-protected hotel rooms, can be hacked with open-source hardware costing about $20. What’s more, any hacker, thief, stalker . . . or someone from the government, only needs 200 milliseconds for such untraceable access.
