Description: Embedded devices come into your network and appear in many different forms, including printers, iPhones, wireless routers and network-based cameras. What you might not realize is that these devices offer unique opportunities for attackers to do damage and gain access to your network - and to the information it contains. This webcast will review known embedded device vulnerabilities and cover how these vulnerabilities can be used to gain control of devices, networks, and data - and, more importantly, what can be done about it.
Presentation: Things That Go Bump In The Network: Embedded Device (In)Security
Resources: I have collected a number of articles and papers that are relevent to embedded device security. You can find them on my del.icio.us links tag AttackingEmbeddedDevices
Learning More: We do cover many of these same topics, while at the same time learning how embedded devices can be hacked and used for various things, in my SANS course titled SEC535: Network Security Projects Using Hacked Wireless Routers.
