LECTURE ON HIGH SECURITY MECHANICAL LOCKS AND ELECTRONIC ACCESS CONTROL SYSTEMS: University of Cambridge Computer Security Lab, Cambridge, England on April 28, 2009


MEDECO NEXGEN electronic cylinder utilized in vending machines, parking meters,
cargo containers and other applications where an audit trail is required.



MEDECO NEXGEN cylinder is installed in a specially-designed padlock to secure cargo and other valuables. The lock provides a complete audit trail of all accesses with the Medeco-supplied key. The lock is in the open position.

I will be lecturing at The University of Cambridge Computer Security Lab on April 28, 2009 with regard to security vulnerabilities and legal issues involving both high security mechanical locks and electronic access control systems. This will be a follow-up to my lecture in Dubai earlier in the month.

Information on the Medeco NexGen, Logic, Assa Abloy Cliq and other access control technologies will be presented in detail in the supplement to OPEN IN THIRTY SECONDS.
