This can only be read by our key duplication machine, which is uploaded via a USB removable storage device as the key machine is partnered with a PC. This key machine is also locked via a ‘Secured Section Key’ so it cannot be copied by anyone other than the machine’s manufacturer and the machine cannot be used unless the key is inserted. The PC is also password protected and not connected to the internet.
