Short description

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing quickly. Ever more devices are being connected to the Internet to make them easier to use and for automation purposes. Refrigerators are automatically re-ordering milk, an update will teach our cars to drive themselves, whilst bridges send live updates on their structural integrity.

IoT means connecting physical devices with the virtual world. The rapid development of hardware and software, network protocols as well as the incorporation of devices in our day-to-day lives creates a large attack surface culminating in an abundance of security holes and vulnerabilities.

This seminar not only highlights the technical fundamentals and network protocols, but, above all, also uses practical examples to highlight the security of these standards. Compass equips you in this course with the skills you need to securely design, evaluate and operate IoT devices. 

The exercises will be done on www.hacking-lab.com. Following the course, the labor environment is available to the participants for 30 more days.


Learning objectives

Participants will learn the fundamental components of the Internet of Things and be able to recognize what attack vectors exist. This applies equally to hardware, firmware and software components as well as to network protocols and architecture. You'll then be able to evaluate the use of IoT systems according to security criteria
