3D-printed TSA master keys put travellers’ luggage at risk

Anyone with a 3D printer can now unlock every single TSA-approved padlock, thanks to a security lapse by the American government agency.

The Transportation Security Administration, created following the 9/11 attacks to ensure the safety of travellers into and around the US, requires any lock on bags to be branded as “travel sentry approved”, to enable them to carry out searches without having to break the lock or bag.
