Minute-hacks against Robi the Robot

This talk is co-presented with Tomescu Daniel, Security Penetration Tester @ KPMG Romania
Stefan and Daniel will talk about a recent research project that focused on testing the security of an IoT Robot. The approach of the project was directly from an attacker’s perspective, being more technically specific in details regarding vector of attacks, an attacker’s entry points and different types of device hijacking. Given the early stages of the robotics field, the research project aims to raise awareness of the security implementations embedded over these specific IoT devices.
