Key Duplication from Photos

Interesting article on duplicating keys from photographs:

http://vision.ucsd.edu/~blaxton/sneakey.html

A similar technique was used a while back to duplicate a set of master keys from pictures on the Diebold website

A somewhat lower-tech approach as well:

I read on theregister.co.uk that the software written to re-create the key only works on yale keys, as there are far too many types of keys on the open market for the system to know them all.
it will be a few years i guess before they have a huge collection.

That's where the lower-tech approach might come in handy  ;D

One such lower-tech approach might include lock bumping.

High security assets ought not be secure with yale locks IMHO.

Hrmm I wonder if one approach or the other would leave more or less physical signs of the lock being opened. Sounds like its time for an experiment :)

Re: Key Duplication from Photos

Key duplication from a photo is not that difficult.  A set of keys, lets say Kwikset or Schlage, with each cut: all 1's, all 2's, all 3's... called  depth & space keys can be obtained on eBay for $10-$15. These can be used as a reference to identify the key depths form the photo.  (there used to be a ruler program available which allowed you to measure parts of an image if you gave it a known). The depth sequence can be repeated on a blank using the depth and space keys on a key duplicator or the codes can be cut on a key code machine.
