Embedded System Cyber Security

Goals

To examine and assess the existence of cyber security found within IoT hardware devices. In order to achieve this, we will implement a multi-domain investigation through the use of hardware reverse engineering, software/firmware reverse engineering, RF analysis, along with static and dynamic testing through instrumentation. Finally, any identified holes in the devices cyber security protection will be tested and demonstrated.

Issues Involved or Addressed

Automated testing and tool development, design of wireless communication links, zero-day discovery.
