IoT Security Bootcamp

Delivery: classroom // Duration: 3 days

This is a hands-on IoT hacking class . It covers all aspects of IoT Security, from the
technologies and testing methodologies to the vulnerabilities. The main focus is
offensive security: attacking and testing the devices and platforms.
We first cover the basics and lay out the ground with concepts before diving into the
actual hacking. This provides the understanding of what and why the things can be
hacked, with a good mix of knowledge and learning-by-doing or in this case

Students will receive a free IoT Hacking Kit (hardware with a value of +300 Euros),
which contains the tools and some vulnerable devices used in class, so that they can
continue sharpening their skills or hack devices after the event.


Learning Objectives

After the class, the attendees will be able to evaluate the security of different IoTarchitectures, identify the attack surface, knowledge of security testingmethodologies and how to use them, dump, extract and analyze device firmwares,hack UART, SPI, I2C and JTAGs, debug and attack hardware and software, analyzeprotocols, attack radio and wireless communications like BLE, Zigbee, and customprotocols and much more.

Mit dem Auto- von der A92/München

Orientieren Sie sich an der Beschilderung “Frachtgebaude” unde verlassen Sie die Autobahn. Folgen Sie der Straße nach rechts, Sie überqueren auf der Brücke die S-Bahn Linie. Biegen Sie bei der nächsten Möglichkeitne rechts ab un folgen dem Straßenverlauf über eine langgezogene Rechtsverurve. Fogen Sie der Straße weiterhin bis Sie links abbiegen können. Biegen Sie links ab. Zu Ihrer Rechten erreichen Sie die “Luftpostleitstelle”.

By car - from the A92 / Munich

Follow the signs “Frachtgebaude” and leave the motorway. Follow the road to the right and cross the S-Bahn line on the bridge. At the next opportunity, turn right and follow the road over a long right turn. Continue to follow the street until you can turn left. Turn left. On your right you will reach the “Luftpostleitstelle”.

Mit der S-Bahn / dem Flugzeug

Steigen Sie in die S-Bahn-Linie S8 oder S1 und fahren Sie bis zum “Besucherpark”. Verlassen Sie in die S-Bahn-Station in Richtung Flight- Operations-Center (FOC/Lufthanasa) und folgen Sie am Ende der Treppen nach unten der Straße zu Ihrer Linken bis zum Ende der “Frachtgebäide”. Gehen Sie weiter gerade aus und folgen Sie der Straße nach rechts. Am Ende dieser Straße erreichen Sie die “Luftpostleitstelle”.

By S-Bahn / airplane

Get on the S-Bahn line S8 or S1 and drive to the “Besucherpark”. Exit the S-Bahn station towards the Flight-Operations-Center (FOC / Lufthanasa) and at the bottom of the stairs, follow the road to the left to the end of the “Frachtgebäide”. Continue straight ahead and follow the road to the right. At the end of this street you reach the “Luftpostleitstelle”.

Are events and trainings in English or in German?

Since we want to provide the best trainings and events for “Securing the Global future” we offer our programs in both English and German. You can tell which language the training or event is in by which flag icon is listed next to the title. A British flag for English or the German flag for Deutsch.

Where can I check my ticket order?

You can always check or make changes to your ticket order by using the link in the email you received after you completed your booking. If you don’t have this link anymore, you can request a new mail through our ticketshop.
