To examine and assess the existence of cyber security found within IoT hardware devices. In order to achieve this, we will implement a multi-domain investigation through the use of hardware reverse engineering, software/firmware reverse engineering, and RF analysis along with static and dynamic testing through instrumentation. Finally, any identified holes in the devices' cyber security protection will be tested and demonstrated.
Issues Involved or Addressed
Automated testing and tool development, design of wireless communication links, zero-day discovery.
