New Access Card Duplication Kiosks Pose Security Threats

The Problem

A New York company has installed at least 15 self-service key duplication kiosks at convenience stores in San Diego. These kiosks offer an inexpensive and easy-to-use “card or fob” duplication service. The service has been tested and fully functional duplicate cards and key fobs were received.

What does this mean?

This means that individuals with standard cards/fobs can easily purchase duplicate cards/fobs without your authorization or knowledge. This service clearly undermines the intent and security of card access systems. It means that a system could have unknown quantities of duplicate cards in use.
