Embedded Device Pwning

Thursday, April 5th, 2018
Huang 305

You get your hands on an embedded device - what now? Join us as we learn about basic hardware analysis, reversing extracted firmware, and how to tailor a payload to gain persistence on a device.

Embedded devices are found everywhere. These devices are much more resource constrained than the average computer and tend to be rushed to market. This talk will focus on reverse engineering techniques, ranging from hardware tear-downs to reversing the firmware on the device.

We will scope the talk so that no prior experience will be necessary, and those who focus on software security can hopefully learn about a new class of targets to analyze.

This event is open to all Stanford students, faculty, and staff.
