Live Hack: Demonstrating Common IoT Security Weaknesses

Status: Available Now

How would hackers attack your IoT device? Joe Hopper, Principal Security Consultant at Fracture Labs, will demonstrate several complex hacks against off-the-shelf IoT devices to shed light on the design and implementation weaknesses seen across the industry. He will walk through common attacks such as: finding and connecting to hidden serial consoles, boot process hijacking, memory analysis, firmware extraction, password cracking, and more to gain unauthorized access to IoT devices and customer information.

By using the same approach hackers use against your devices, you will walk away with a better understanding of where and how you need to tighten security controls.
