HackMiami Conference 6 Training Classes
(Training includes general admission admissioin to Hackmiami Conference)
Security Engineering of IoT and Embedded Systems
By Michael Schloh von Bennewitz
Examining IP (Ethernet), Serial (CAN, I2C, SPI, TIA/EIA), and RF (Bluetooth) communication, this full day workshop teaches invasive security from a developer perspective. We build and penetrate embedded systems, concluding with reverse engineering, penetration testing, or constructive discussion. Rather than treating legacy APTs with Metasploit or Nmap, we extend our reach to include microcontroller MCUs with no TCP/IP stack or user kernel:
Controller Area Network (CAN)
Consumer Vehicles (Automotive)
Industrial Aerospace and Robotics
RF Exposed Data
Baby Phones (M2M Comm)
Webcams (Mirai Botnet!)
Building Automation (Locks)
Smart Homes (Detection* and Relays)
*Turn light emitters into detectors
Besides knowledge, you get to keep and take home hardware:
ARM Cortex (NXP) MCU
Atmel 328P based MCU
IoT Empire 802.3 Tap
We'll work with devices on loan for the workshop duration:
Tessel2 Estimote beacon
RaspberryPi CC2650 SensorTag
Beaglebone Assorted shields
Minnowboard Blesh beacon
nRF51-BTLE Voltera One
