Paper Abstract

Three-dimensional printing and scanning can be used to replicate keys. This is problematic due to the vast number of keyed locks installed and the effort required to convert these to a more resistant technology. This paper considers whether certain types of keys / locks may be more resistant to 3D scanning and printing. Data is collected and analyzed to determine whether a set of common features exist between keys that are more or less resistant to 3D scanning and printing-based duplication. Based on this analysis, the short, medium term and long term viability of keyed locks is considered.
