Hardware Hacking Workshop – 3Day
Instructor: Dmitry Nedospasov, toothless.co.

Hardware security analysis differs from software security analysis primarily in the tools and techniques required for the task at hand. However, many security researchers overestimate the learning curve required to begin successfully performing embedded hardware analysis. This training is specifically designed for security researchers who wish to improve their familiarity with hardware security and hardware implementations in particular. The training is built as a set of Capture the Flag (CTF) style assignments designed to familiarize students with common flaws in hardware implementations. In this training, students will learn to develop custom hardware implementations utilizing programmable logic, i.e. Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLDs). Students will thoroughly understand the advantages of building tools based on programmable logic, understand how hardware implementations are realized and exploit several common hardware security flaws. ToorCon Deep Knowledge Seminar is not included since the 3rd day of the workshop conflicts. ToorCon Conference is included with the workshop. See Syllabus…

 

Software Defined Radio Workshop – 2Day
Instructor: Michael Ossmann, Great Scott Gadgets

The two day Software Defined Radio (SDR) workshop at ToorCon is an introduction to digital signal processing, software radio, and the powerful tools that enable the growing array of SDR projects within the hacker community. This course takes a unique “software radio for hackers” approach, building on the participants’ knowledge of computer programming and introducing them to the forefront of digital radio technology. Participants will learn how to transmit, receive, and analyze radio signals and will be prepared to use this knowledge in the research of wireless communication security. ToorCon Deep Knowledge Seminar is not included since the 3rd day of the workshop conflicts. ToorCon Conference is included with the workshop.  See Syllabus…
