    Expert in hacking unlocks a secret that opens real doors...

    Wow that'd pretty cool. This would solve the problem for a lot of people. Especialy those kids who say, "oh ya I can pick locks!" even if they cannot (come on, admit it, we all did that atleast once).
    I wonder if the security journal that he submited that paper to will publish it, or will they recieve so much flak from AT&T and the government that they will decide not to publish it. Personaly I hope that they do, though it would be a rather large thorn in many people's back sides.
