Introduction to Hardware Hacking [Full day class]

This training will introduce the audience to the field of reverse engineering electronics. Attendees will learn in a hands on environment how to identify areas of circuit boards to target and perform the extraction of firmware and data at rest, and interception of data in transit. The workshop will introduce and explain various ICs such as microcontrollers and radio transceivers, JTAG, common embedded flash storage solutions, and various types of communication buses. Registration cost includes some hardware hacking tools that may be kept by attendees. The target audience for this workshop has little to no experience in electronics. 

Attendees will receive:
- A Bus Pirate or GoodFET
- Hookup wire and EZ-hooks for connecting components to target hardware
