  • IoT Security Workshop by Aseem Jakhar
Note: The session details including schedule are available below.

"The great power of Internet of Things comes with great responsibility of its security". Being the hottest technology, developments and innovations are happening at a stellar speed, but the security of IoT is yet to catch up. So, we have embarked on a journey to make IoT security easy and one of the first steps is by releasing an open source framework for IoT security testing called EXPLIoT -, for the community.

IoT security testing with EXPLIoT framework" workshop will offer security professionals a good understanding of:
1. IoT potocols
2. IoT security issues
3. How to use EXPLIoT framework for security testing
4. Creating your own plugins in EXPLIoT.
The workshop will have hands-on to enable attendees to use EXPLIoT and understand techniques to find and exploit vulnerabilities in IoT ecosystem. The workshop will also discuss how to attack the underlying hardware of the sensors. It is aimed at security professionals who want to enhance their skills and move to/specialize in IoT security.
