A hands on introduction to hardware hacking
Trainer: Dr. Silvio Cesare
Dr. Silvio Cesare received the Ph.D in 2013 from Deakin University. His research interests include malware detection, software similarity, and physical security of electronic and radio devices. He is the Director of Anti-Malware Engineering at Qualys where he is commercializing the concepts from his Ph.D. on malware detection. He is also author of the book Software Similarity and Classification, published by Springer. He has worked in industry within Australia, France and the United States. This work includes time as the scanner architect of Qualys - now the world's largest vulnerability assessment company. In addition to his Ph.D., he has a Bachelor of Information Technology and a Master of Informatics by research from CQUniversity. He is currently studying part-time in a Master of Engineering (Digital Systems and Telecommunications) at the ANU. He is a member of the IEEE, hosts the popular panel discussion at Ruxcon, is an organiser of Ruxmon Canberra, and lives in Canberra, Australia.
In this 1 day training event, you'll learn the basics of introductory hardware hacking. You'll learn practical skills and tool usage and also learn some underlying theory.
Specifically, time permitting, you'll learn:
1) Basic electronics theory.
2) How to solder. You'll implement this basic skill to build a small toy electronics kit.
3) How to interface with UART. You'll disassemble an ADSL router, solder header pins, and interface with it.
4) How to dump serial flash using the BusPirate.
$500 per person (Standard)
$350 per person (Student/concession)
All hardware and tools will be provided but you'll need to bring a laptop. You don't need to know about electronics or hardware to get value out of this course.
Running with rabbits for beginners
Trainer: Hugh Davenport
Hugh is a software developer and security consultant based in Wellington, NZ. He has an interest in bounties, fuzzing and training.
This training session will give attendees a rundown on how to work with the american fuzzy lop (afl) fuzzing tool. This fuzzer allows users to find memory corruption bugs among others.
The training session will have some example programs that contain bugs, walk through setting up the fuzzer, running it, and triaging the bugs. Some details will be given on both exploiting and fixing the bugs as well. Note that these will be simulated bugs in programs/libraries only used for training. No zero days will be presented.
