The Internet of Evil Things

  • Dr. Johannes Ullrich
  • Monday, September 25th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Embedded systems are the new target. As our networks grow uncontrolled and unsupervised, forgotten machines will take over and rule us all soon. Analyzing the embedded malware that comes with this presents a number of challenges. Current debuggers and virtualization techniques that mimic these systems are incomplete and will not allow us to completely analyze malware the way we are used to in good old desktop malware environments. These malware blackboxes need different instrumentations and techniques. We will present some ideas on how to analyze these malware samples, and introduce you to embedded system analysis (unless your bot is removing this event from your smart watch's reminder list).
