Reverse Engineering Protocols for Fun and Profit

Luciano Moretti

Abstract:

We live in a connected world with but not all devices speak the same language or even standardized ones.

White Hats need to figure out how to communicate with devices to get information and find vulnerabilities.

Red Hats can exploit custom protocols as a new, often poorly guarded entry point.
