BLE Hacking - From Wearables to Insertables

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Internet of Things devices are everywhere now; in part due to the influx of cheap devices from China and easy to construct boards. Most of these devices now communicate using the low power and ubiquitous Bluetooth Low Energy protocol (BLE).

In this workshop we will be taking people through BLE from how it works, on to how to replay messages and progressing onto more complex attacks such as intercepting the traffic from the BLE module onboard the device and reading out the chip’s firmware. The core aim will be to give both an understanding of how to hack the hardware itself, and how that fits into the larger context of practical attacks on devices.

Covering: Bluetooth Low Energy, Hardware Hacking

Nice to have: a laptop plus a BT4 dongle
