Wondering how our White Oak Security pentesters open doors they don’t have access to? The Bypassing Doors blog series will demonstrate easy-to-use tools and techniques that can be utilized to bypass your organization’s interior and exterior doors. In this part 2 post, we will go through a quick overview of the Double Door Tool (DDT).
The DDT is perfect for any exterior crash bar doors that unfortunately have a centerline gap. Without a proper blocking plate or improperly spaced doors, this tool can be very effective in gaining access to a building through double doors.
Double Door Tool – DDT
The images below display the DDT and the type of double doors that it works on, it’s a pretty simple tool that pentesters include in their pentesting toolkit. One would insert the tool between the double doors, then twist the tool to work it against the crash bar handles by maneuvering the tool in different directions. Then apply pressure to push the handle down once the tool is in place – bingo! Access inside is that quick & easy.
