The Bowley Lock – Unpickable Genius

The Bowley Lock – Unpickable Genius

This is a good analogy for modern cryptography approaches in IT: security through obscurity is inferior to good design. The best encryption methods are completely open in source, just as you can take apart this lock and look into it. The strength of this lock does not derive from you not being able to look inside of it – the strength of the lock comes from being hard to open despite knowledge of its design.

BIG THANKS TO DRACULYA FOR THIS GREAT FIND!

Interesting lock but those keys look kind of fragile, easy to bend or brake.
