Social engineering is often the most effective tool in the box.

Many years ago I was part of a military team that did these kinds of things as part of our job (no it wasnt Red Cell, no I dont know Dick Marcinko)  One of the tenants I learned out of this bit of additional duty time is:  Most people see what they expect to see.  If you look like and act like you belong somewhere, that is exactly what most people take it as...aka face value.  Even during exercises where people should have been expecting "funny" business, we were able to talk our way into areas that for sure should have been secured, all by looking like we belonged.

I do similar things in my office job.  You'd be surprised (or not) the amount of people you've never met are willing to step away from their computers for a coffee break due to a quick "spot check" or "audit" of their system.  Holding a clipboard and acting a tad bit impatient works wonders!  :)

You both seem to describe Edward Snowden's tactics to a "T".

Edward Snowden was no computer espionage pioneer... thatís just standard social engineering 101.
