Winner of the Best Book Bejtlich Read in 2010--
"Practical Lock Picking (PLP) is an awesome book. I don't provide physical testing services, but as a security professional familiar with Deviant's reputation I was curious to read PLP. Not only is PLP an incredible resource, it should also serve as a model text for others who want to write a good book. First, although the book is less than 250 pages, it is very reasonably priced. Second, Deviant wastes NO space. There is no filler material, background found in other readily available texts, reprinted Web site content, etc. Third, the writing is exceptionally clear and methodical, with extreme attention to detail and a master's approach to educating the reader. Finally, the diagrams, pictures, and figures are superb."--Richard Bejtlich, TaoSecurity "No matter what your background is, if you want a new and fascinating insight into this world, I don't think any book will give you a better introduction to this field than this one."--Barry Wels, Founder and President, The open Organisation Of Lockpickers "You have exhausted your budgets on the myriad of high tech cyber threats and finally have time to take a breath. Just as you settle in your chair to review the dashboard which shows the fruits of your tireless effort, an alert hits your phone. The voice on the phone cries out 'The servers are GONE!' This book will show you what happens when attackers decide to 'get physical."--Chris Nickerson, Lares Consulting "The clear explanation and plentiful diagrams leave the reader with a clear idea of how lock mechanisms work, and the practice exercises that follow build on this knowledge to allow the reader to quickly progress before moving on to the simpler techniques, shimming and bumping...Overall the book does much to dispel the myth that lock-picking is an arcane, difficult art and puts the reader in a position to carry out more effective physical security reviews...In summary this is an excellent practical introduction to the subject and the publishers are to be congratulated for producing another good niche penetration testing book."--Nick Dunn, BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT "Deviant’s material is presented with rich, detailed diagrams and is offered in easy-to-follow lessons which allow even beginners to acquire the knowledge very quickly. Everything from straightforward lockpicking to quick-entry techniques like shimming, bumping, and bypassing is explained and show. Whether you’re being hired to penetrate security or simply trying to harden your own defenses, this book is essential."--The Journal of Law Enforcement "While reading this book, it will be difficult for you to sit calmly and go through it, you will be tempted to look for the locks around your house and start tinkering with it…. What makes this book easy to understand are the clear cut diagrams showing the internal design of locks. You will hardly find a page in this book without those design pictures and all of these are precise engineering-diagram types – not just some random lock pictures. It is very clear that author has taken great efforts to get those pictures right and this is what gives this book 5 star rank!"--SecurityXploded Blog "There is a well known member of the locksport community called Deviant Ollam He has released a book on lockpicking and penetration testing of locks. Practical Lock Picking: A Physical Penetration Tester's Training Guide [Paperback] This man is an excellent teacher and has given many lectures on locks and picking."--Lockpicking.com "This is a fantastic book that I highly recommend if you have any interest in physical security. It's a great reference and guide book for getting started with lock picking, learning how locks work, and really motivates you to want to get your hands dirty trying out the techniques covered in the book."--Dark Readings Evil Bytes Blog "Great book for the beginner or an old pro. Been reading lock picking books for 35 years and this is one of the best... Deviant Ollam, one of the security industry's best-known lock picking teachers, has assembled an instructional manual geared specifically toward penetration testers. Unlike other texts on the subject (which tend to be either massive volumes detailing every conceivable style of lock or brief "spy manuals" that only skim the surface) this book is for INFOSEC professionals that need essential, core knowledge of lock picking and seek the ability to open most locks with relative ease."--e2e Security website "Be sure to check out his book as well: Practical Lock Picking: A Physical Penetration Tester's Training Guide. The book, published this past July by Syngress, comes with a DVD ‘filled with indispensible lock picking videos and color photos.’"--The Ethical Hacker website "Practical Lock Picking is an awesome book… Not only is PLP an incredible resource, it should also serve as a model text for others who want to write a good book… There is no filler material… the writing is exceptionally clear and methodical with extreme attention to detail and a master’s approach to educating the reader… The diagrams, pictures, and figures are superb… Overall, this book is helpful for those wishing to pick locks AND those who want to know how to write a good book."--TaoSecurity blog "…for those that have locksmithing in their blood, or want to get greater insights, the book will be a great resource that will help them get there."--Slashdot.com and RSA Conference, December 2012

Second, it shows you how crummy the security of some locks are, points out good brands, and gives you an idea of how much a good lock costs, and why. Worth my while to read to help me understand how secure my locks are.
Does not give you the ability to pick good locks, which is a good thing to me.
I am not especially interested in picking locks but understanding the process is very valuable to understand what to avoid to increase security. I can now recognize good padlocks and poor padlocks and can understand how pin tumbler locks are made pick resistant.
The discussion of wafer locks was not as good - the author seemed to assume that they were so inferior that they deserved very little space. As a result, my understanding of wafer locks is inferior to my understanding of pin tumbler locks.
What the author totally ignored was the Deluxe ACE Tubular Lockpick. This item is sold in many stores and you can see it being used in the excellent video "Lock Picking for the New Millenium". It cost much less at around $270 and no additional parts are necessary. It's easier to use and is much more compact. Perfect for both the novice and the pro.
There were other recommendations that I have found to be not that good, especially when it came to individual picks. The book is easy enough to read, but I would be careful about taking it's recommendations. Makes me wonder if the author is getting some kind of kickback from certain lockpick tool makers.
When it comes to physical locks, the average lock on your home and in your office is equally insecure. How insecure it in? In a fascinating book on the topic, Deviant Ollam writes in Practical Lock Picking, Second Edition: A Physical Penetration Tester's Training Guide that it is really not that difficult.
When it comes to information security penetration tests done on the client site, the testers will most often have permission to be inside the facility. On rare occasions, the testers need to find alternative means to gain entrance. Sometimes that means picking the locks.
All of the information in the books is long known to professional locksmiths. For those whose responsibilities include physical security, it is hoped that they are at least at the level of the locksmiths, and have designed their physical security plant accordingly.
In Practical Lock Picking, Second Edition: A Physical Penetration Tester's Training Guide, Deviant Ollam shares his passion for lock picking, which is manifest throughout the books.
Ollam is a member of The Open Organisation Of Lockpickers (TOOOL), a group whose goal is to advance the general public knowledge about locks and lock picking. TOOLS mantra is that the more that people know about lock technology, the better they are capable of understanding how and where certain weaknesses are present. This makes them well-equipped to participate in sport picking endeavors and also helps them simply be better consumers in the marketplace, making decisions based on sound fact and research. In these books, Ollam stays true to that mantra.
Practical Lock Picking is meant as beginners guide to lock picking, and is intended to be a hands-on guide with hundreds of pictures and diagrams.
Ollam writes in a clear-cut and systematic manner, describing all of the details needed. Nearly every page includes pictures and diagrams to illustrate the point. In 6 easily readable chapters, Ollam covers the core areas needed to gain a comprehensive understanding of the topic of lock picking. By the end of the book, you won't be a locksmith or even close. But for those that have locksmithing in their blood, or want to get greater insights, the book will be a great resource that will help them get there.
Chapter 1 starts the book on the fundamentals of pin tumbler and wafer locks; which are two of the most common types of locks in use. Ollam notes that while there are a multitude of lock designs on the market today produced by many different manufactures, the bulk of these locks are not in widespread use. With that, he notes that if the reader can understand the basics of just a few styles of locks, he is confident that the reader should be able to open with great ease at least 75% of the locks they are likely to encounter, and even more as you become more skilled with them.
After the introduction, chapter 2 gets into the basics of lock picking and how to exploit weaknesses that most locks have. Many of these weaknesses are due to errors in the manufacturing process, which the book details. Information security guru has observed that "security is a tax on the honest majority". He writes that security often does not keep the bad guys out. Similarly, insecure physical locks will do little to keep the bad guys out, which Ollam so persuasively writes about.
In chapter 5, Ollam details what he terms quick-entry tricks, which is done via shimming, bumping and bypassing. Lock bumping has gotten a lot of media exposure in the last few years, but has been around for nearly 100 years. Specifically, it is a pin tumbler lock picking technique using a special bump key. Not that there is a universal bump key that can open all locks. Rather the bump key must correspond to the lock in question. Ollam shows that if one has such a key, many of these locks can quickly be compromised.
The book closes with an appendix that provides a list to the types of tools and toolkits necessary to pick locks.
Practical Lock Picking, Second Edition: A Physical Penetration Tester's Training Guide is a great introduction to the topic of lock picking for those who perform physical penetration testing, this will prove to be invaluable. For those that simply want to understand what their locks are and aren't doing, they will find these to be a fascinating read.
