Hardware Hacking the Easyware Way - Brian Fehrman Derbycon 2016 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Hardware Hacking the Easyware Way
Brian Fehrman
Derbycon 2016

Interested in hardware hacking but not quite sure where to start? Does the thought of soldering thrill you (or scare you)? Come check out this talk to see just how easy it is to jump into this exciting field of research! Many people and companies use similar models of hardware. Unlike software, these devices rarely receive security updates. Sometimes, used devices are sold without clearing the configurations and important data is left behind. After this talk, you will know how to find hidden interfaces on these devices, start searching for vulnerabilities and sensitive information, and have irresistible urges to go home and tear apart all your old networking equipment. Did we mention...live demo?

Brian Fehrman has been interested in security since an early age. He quickly found a passion for programming by learning to code in Visual Basic. From there, he moved on to C++, C#, and then adapted to using any language that he found to be the right tool for the job. He learned to apply this knowledge to interacting with the physical world through signal processing, robotics, computer vision, and artificial intelligence. Brian combined his love for programming and his enthusiasm for security into a single space. He has performed security assessments for numerous Fortune 500 companies, has made contributions to open source security projects such as recon-ng, has developed and instructed training for Black Hat, participated and was recognized in the first DOD-sponsored bug-bounty program, and has previously spoken at DerbyCon. Brian currently holds a Minor in Mathematics, a B.Sc. in Computer Science, and M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering, an M.Sc. in Computational Sciences and Robotics, and the GIAC GXPN certification.
