Your luggage HACKED: Group creates 3D printable master key for major line of TSA-approved luggage locks
Three hackers have developed and released a 3D printable master key used by Transportation Security Administration, which opens Safe Skies luggage locks.
During a talk given on Saturday, the three hackers showed the 3D-printable model of the Safe Skies master key.
In addition to the key, they also discussed methods of collecting intelligence, which led to the compromise of Travel Sentry master keys in 2015 and vulnerabilities in the Safe Skies lock design. Travel Sentry and Safe Skies are TSA recommended travel locks for luggage. They became popular in 2003 to prevent theft.
