About the Event

OzSecCon (formerly OzLockCon) is the first open and inclusive community event focusing on both analogue and digital physical security in Australia.

The conference will introduce people from all areas of security, whether professionals or hobbyists, to new techniques, tools and ideas in order to learn new skills or refine existing ones.

We will have both standard talks and a variety of on-going workshops open to attendees with industry-leading presenters and instructors across a diverse range of topics.

In addition, we will be running a variety of competitions throughout the weekend with prizes on offer for those who win!

Our aim is to cover not only traditional physical security controls (such as locks and safes) but more modern access control systems that are increasingly becoming more digital as time goes on.

This will not only include network-connected devices but also devices such as those relying on radio communications in order to operate.

We hope that all those attending find the experience both informative, engaging and importantly, fun!



Our call for papers is open until the 30th of April 2018. You can submit a talk via this link!

In 2017 we had a number of high quality talks about a variety of subjects including red-teaming, electronic attacks against smart locks, tool making, exotic locks, key duplication, impressioning and more. In 2018 we are hoping to run two streams of high quality talks simultaneously! Please check our twitter feed and website regularly as talks are announced. 


Our call for workshops is open until the 30th of April 2018. You can submit a workshop via this link!

We aim to have a number of hands on activities running throughout the weekend, lock picking, key impressionoing, safe-scoping, tamper evident, RFID and Radio attacks were demonstrated as part of workshops at OzLockCon 2017. In 2018 we want to make the workshops bigger and better to take full advantage of the unique facilities we will have available to us. Please check our twitter feed and website regularly as workshops are announced. 


We will be running competitions for lock picking and for key impressioning. At this stage, we are likely to use Lockwood 234/45's, 243b45's or 334b45 variant padlocks with the LW29 keyway. This may change in future so keep track on our twitter page for any important announcements

About the Organizer

The team at OzSecCon are a loose-knit group of physical security enthusiasts. We come from a diverse range of backgrounds; some of us work in security (eg. as locksmiths or in IT security) and others work in completely unrelated fields, but we’re all locksport hobbyists — what binds us all is our common interest and passion for locks and all things physical security. In early 2016 we started a chat channel as a place for us to share knowledge about physical security. For the most part we grew as a group from ‘hacker-conferences’ and as such we’ve embraced the hacker spirit of sharing knowledge amongst our peers. 2017 saw a small subset of enthusiasts start up our first conference 'OzLockCon' which we ran successfully with more than 200 people in attendance. In 2018 our core group of staff has grown and we aim to have more content and more hands on participation across the entire event. ~The OzSecCon Consmiths
