Just received a brochure where SAE is offering a seminar for people to understand how to defend against an attack on embedded hardware of things like a cars radio and wireless communication systems. The seminar will cover how to identify hardware components, understand datasheets, debug ports (the hidden paths), attempt to intercept communications between an MCU and external memory and extract the firmware code from an embedded system. Basically it teaches how to reverse engineer the hardware and how to control it. (Great course for crooks). The course ends with the students attempting to break into and take control of a refrigerator or some other custom embedded device.
It's already been demonstrated that a person can take control of a car while driving down the highway and cause to to brake to a standstill or perform other nasty tricks by connecting in through the modem. Also crooks have figured out how to take control of your smart access FOB signal, (it's always broadcasting) unlock your car and drive off all while you are happily shopping for your favorite beer.
Never gave my refrigerator a second thought though.
Two days, Oct 16-17 in Troy Michigan. $1,530.
