Training Courses Available:

Applied Physical Attacks On x86 Systems by Joe FitzPatrick (@securelyfitz)
Overview:
This course introduces and explores attacks on several different relatively accessible interfaces on x86 systems. Attendees will get hands-on experience implementing and deploying a number of low-cost hardware devices to enable access, privilege, and deception which is in some cases imperceptible from software.

This offering will cover 4 modules: USB attacks, PCIe attacks, SPI/firmware attacks, SMBUS/I2C attacks. Each begins with an architecture overview, followed by a few labs focused in interacting and exploiting the interface using current tools.

A course outline and additional details can be found at https://securinghardware.com/course-catalog/pax/

Student Requirements:
* Laptop with WiFi, capable of running Ubuntu USB/CD live image (provided)
* Basic familiarity with Linux
Hands-on Hardware Hacking and Reverse Engineering by Joe Grand (@joegrand)
Overview:
This course teaches hardware hacking and reverse engineering techniques commonly used against electronic products and embedded systems. It is a combination of lecture and hands-on exercises covering the hardware hacking process, proper use of tools and test measurement equipment, circuit board analysis and modification, embedded security, and common hardware attack vectors. The course concludes with a final hardware hacking challenge in which students must apply what they've learned to defeat the security mechanism of a custom hardware product. The main goal of this course is to give students the resources and skills they need to confidently approach hardware exploitation and to come up with creative solutions for their own particular engagements.

A course outline and additional details can be found at http://www.grandideastudio.com/portfolio/hardware-hacking-training/

Student Requirements:
* Laptop with Windows (or equivalent virtual machine)
* WiFi capability for online research
* Functional USB interface(s) for hardware control
* The ability to install software and drivers

Training classes are Dec. 9th and 10th, beginning at 8am and concluding at 5pm both days; attendees should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to class start times to ensure adequate time for setup. Food and beverage will be provided to all registered attendees, accomodations and transportation are the responsibility of the attendee unless otherwise noted. Complimentary parking is available at the hotel on a first-come basis and based on availability.
