Experiment says Dormakaba X-10 series devices can be cracked using energy consumption data

Davis experiments minimal change in the power consumption of Swiss devices through third party channels Last year, IO Active research named Mike Davis discovered vulnerability in locks supplied by Swiss Company DormaKaba Holding. This created high Security risk of electronic locks at ATMs, Government organizations, Pharmacy display cases and etc being cracked by measuring power consumption. An experiment carried by Davis by attacking the Swiss devices through third-party channels and measured the minimal changes in electricity consumption with a $ 5k oscilloscope. This experiment was equipped with a built-in-batter and so can work even if disconnect to electricity. David explained about the experiment, “Most of the devices do not hide the energy behind power surges. They use what they need to do for their work”. “I can load an analog signal and convert power signals to units and zeros. I know what’s going on inside the castle”, – the researcher Read more
