Offensive IoT Exploitation


IoT or the Internet of Things is one of the most upcoming trends in technology as of now. A lot many new devices are coming up every single month. However, not much attention has been paid to the device's security till now. "Offensive IoT Exploitation" is a brand new and unique course which offers pentesters the ability to assess the security of these smart devices. The training will cover assessing IoT attack surfaces and finding security issues. The course will be hands-on giving attendees the ability to try things themselves rather than just watching the slides. We will start from the very beginning discussing about the architecture of IoT devices, and then slowly moving to firmware analysis, identifying attack surface and finding/exploiting vulnerabilities. The course labs include both emulated environments as well as real live devices which will be provided to the attendees during the training for the hands-on labs. Offensive IoT Exploitation training is designed for pentesters who want to kickstart their career in IoT Pentesting and the training does not expect the attendees to have a prior knowledge of assembly, mobile security or reversing.
