How to ARM yourself
Beau Bullock, Ralph May & Derek Banks
BSides Tampa 2020

Youre on your first physical pentest, you've gained access to the data center, now what do you do? One of the best options for to demonstrate how physical security failings can bleed over into the digital breach world is to use a Pentest Ddropbox - a small IOT physical digital implant device that can be used as an attack platform against the client's infrastructure. You could buy an expensive prebuilt device and they have their place. But that's not the best you can do, hacker. Come learn how we built a variety of custom pentest dropbox and IOT devices to help us out on our engagements. We will include parts lists, build instructions, software choices, and custom scripts that you can use to build your own evil IOT devices.
