SITizens Learning Credits

Overview

Recently, with the sheer popularity of IoT devices, the number of malware focusing on IoT has multiplied exponentially. This could be attributed to the large number of IoT devices we use in our everyday lives, from smartphones to vehicles, kitchen appliances, and television sets - that all contain IoT. Hence, the impact of a malware attack can be very critical and potentially life-threatening.

This course provides an introduction to IoT forensics. It caters for people from beginner hobbyists to security consultants to senior management. Whether you are a technical person who likes to get your fiddle with IoT hardware or a senior management who wonder how to reverse engineering an IoT device, this course will provide the basic knowledge you need.

This 2-day workshop seeks to introduce and equip an individual with knowledge and skills of various tools to extract firmware from an IoT device. Hands-on practicals will be conducted in both afternoon sessions to complete the workshop.
