<p>The full disclosure versus bug secrecy debate is a lot larger than computer security. Matt Blaze's article on master-key locking systems in this issue (page 24) is a case in point. It turns out that the ways we?ve learned to conceptualize security and attacks in the computer world are directly applicable to other areas of security--like door locks. But the most interesting part of this story is that the locksmith community went ballistic after Blaze published his research on master-key lock vulnerability.</p>
