RSA SecurID undressed


We had a project which used the RSA SecurID token for authentication. But that was more than a year ago. Now what’s left are several unused token which are free for some fun…



“Your RSA SecurID token contains delicate and sophisticated instrumentation. The token casing, LCD and silicon chip will break if abused. Protect your RSA SecurID token from phyiscal abuse. Do not immerse it in liquids, do not expose it to extreme temperatures, and do not put it under pressure or bend it.” (RSA SecurID manual)


Let’s bend it, put it under pressure, expose it to extreme temperatures and liquids. Let’s physical abuse it so that it breaks…

    Interesting.

    Most people fail to notice the black foam.

    Do you have more photo sets with the others in the box where you bend it, put it under pressure, expose it to extreme temperatures and liquids?
