Oct 14 - KeyMe key copying kiosks pose new security threat

A convenient key-copying kiosk is posing new threats to buildings that use electronic access cards, according to security experts.

KeyMe, founded in 2012, has self-service kiosks located in retailers across the U.S. — including 7-Eleven, Bed Bath & Beyond, Safeway, Sears, Rite Aid and more. The company rolled out its machines as a cheap and easy way to copy brass keys.

Now, the company is expanding its machines capable of duplicating electronic keys — like RFID cards and fobs to offices, residential buildings and vehicles. It can also code the RFID key into a sticker. It cost a CBS News journalist just $25 to copy an apartment building key fob

Security consultant Jim Elder says the KeyMe kiosks have made it too easy to copy electronic keys like "proximity cards" to buildings, posing potential security concerns.

"I don't know anybody in my business who would recommend proximity cards now — just because of the ability to clone that card," Elder said

image CBS News security analyst Paul Viollis said KeyMe allows criminals access to vehicles, schools and other buildings with untraceable keys.

"I would never give this my level of endorsement nor would anyone that's really looking at protecting the public good," Viollis said.


Despite the backlash, KeyMe founder and CEO Greg Marsh claims that the machines make copying more secure than it has ever been.

"We can determine who made the key via the financial paper trail we have, security footage like an ATM, time stamp and what key was actually made," Marsh said.

With millions of keys already copied, KeyMe plans to expand to 10,000 locations at grocery stores, pharmacies and other retailers

But in the eyes of security experts, the technology could unlock new threats to buildings across the country

They’ve been saying this for decades. Anything electronic can be hacked or duplicated. Scary times ahead.

Just wait, that’ll be deemed carcinogenic or harmful in some other way to your eyes, guaranteed.

Because fob copying was so hard before this...

Some crack addict on Craigslist will do it for $20 anyway, so I don't get how this is any worse

I used to work at a hotel a few years ago. One night my boss gave me the code to the lock box that holds the master key for the hotel.

During my shift I went to Walmart and made a duplicate. Raided the alcohol closet and lost n found closet everyday making off with good sh*t all the time.

Even when I quit, I would come to the hotel and raid closets for sh*t randomly.

My fund had an opportunity to invest in this years ago.

We lost out on the bid, though.

Always thought it was a great company with solid value add

“I have the master key to every door in this hotel! Let’s go get drunk and raid the lost and found!”
