JTAG/Serial/FLASH/PCB Embedded Reverse Engineering Tools and Techniques

Bring your target. Will release a slew of simple tools that explore attack surfaces and explain of how to use: jtag/serial scanners, parallel flash dumper, DePCB board routing analysis. So, crossover from software RE and start hacking/improving like its 1996 again. (full documentation and reference at: http://events.ccc.de/congress/2010/wiki/Embedded_Analysis) "All non-trivial abstractions, to some degree, are leaky." -- Joel on Software This applies just as well to hardware. In the soft center of embedded security are the human abstraction layers between embedded developers, pcb designers and asic designers which expose attack surfaces that are often rudimentary and unmovable. Using a theoretical embedded target we walk through each surface overcoming obfuscation to gain control. Will release a slew of embedded analysis tools, some lolarduino based, some not. These tools are based on frameworks that support Industrial Design students with electronics prototyping. Meaning, with little technical background you can adapt these tools to your needs. The audience is invited to bring their target where contributors will be clustered in the hack center and be available to suggest means of protection or application of analysis techniques in your project.
