Offensive IoT Penetration Testing and Security

# In Person (5 Days)

# Online (14 Days)
This training program will cover both Offensive and Defensive Security of IoT devices. These training modules are carefully selected to provide the most thorough training available. It will start with the fundamentals of IoT using various industries as examples and learn about typical components and technology used. It will also cover popular security architecture applied to IoT systems as well as security rules & standards.
hackerSlash has introduced IoT Security and Hacking to keep up with changing trends and the need of the hour. Learning IoT is more difficult than you might think. Firmware, Embedded Devices, Serial Communication Protocols, Software Defined Radio, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and ZigBee must all be learned. This course is designed with all of these considerations in mind to emphasize the importance of incorporating security into IoT devices and solutions.

This practical training program will cover threats to IoT systems, attack vectors, common security design loopholes, IoT hardware vulnerabilities, OWASP IoT top 10, APIs, security protocols and other backend services will be covered as well. Moving forward it will cover how to integrate current security services to protect an IoT service, how to put security system design into practice. Learn to deploy cryptographic solutions, identify and access management solutions, key management, and create policies and strategies for securing IoT devices. This IoT security course is hands-on practical training to provide learners with a comprehensive experiential and practical learning experience. As we believe that practical knowledge impacts more on the participants.

This training program is structured into four sections to ensure that you grasp each one completely. It has been deliberately developed to provide you the most thorough training possible.

We'll start with offensive IoT internals, identifying attack surfaces, and creating a pen test mindset, then move on to Firmware RE, electronics internals, Embedded Device Hacking, and eventually exploiting BLE and ZigBee communication protocols, all through hands-on labs and exercises. The offensive training will assist you in determining how to choose a security solution that meets your needs rather than vice versa.

Then we'll move on to IoT security. There are a few things to remember when it comes to security. You must establish trust in the IoT by using eSIMs, IAM systems, and certificates to create trusted identities. You'll also need to decide what kind of encryption you'll employ for data while it travels and rests on devices and in the cloud.
Section- 1 (IoT Penetration Testing)
Deep dive into embedded/IoT firmware, starting with the fundamentals: understanding the multistage boot process, the kernel and root filesystems, how to build them with a custom toolchain, and how they can be compromised by the user and kernel-mode backdoors/rootkits.

Learn what's entailed in using DIY open-source technologies to improve your security. Will it, in the end, assist you in having a secure solution for your IoT product? How will you secure data transmission and storage, and how will you handle such a large number of encryption keys? We'll be utilizing the newest 4.15.x kernel on an ARM architecture board for this session.
