Students will be immersed in the mysteries of PACS tokens, RFID credentials, readers, alarm contacts, tamper switches, door controllers, and backhaul protocols that underpin Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) across the globe.
Babak Javadi Senior instructor, Red Team Alliance
Babak is a noted member of the physical security community, well-recognized among both professional circles (due to the work The CORE Group) as well as in the hacker world (as the President of TOOOL, The Open Organisation Of Lockpickers.) His first foray into the world of physical security was in the third grade, where he was sent to detention for showing another student how to disassemble the doorknob on the classroom supply closet. Babak is an integral part of the numerous lockpicking workshops, training sessions, and games that are seen at annual events like DEFCON, ShmooCon, DeepSec, NotACon, QuahogCon, HOPE, and Maker Faires across the country. He likes spicy food and lead-free small arms ammunition.
