Remote Yacht Hacking

In my Talk I will present latest attack scenarios against modern vessel and yachts.

While modern vessels connected to Internet via SAT-Com or WiFi / GSM Internet Router and the security of the Network is relaying on those devices, this could be interessting, because of
NMEA Gateways connecting the Backbone of the Ship with the IP Network.
The NMEA backbone (National Marine Electronics Association) is like a CAN Bus in Cars and this bidirectional Gateways are used for communications.
Marine Routers are sometimes worst, as my research will present a couple of holes in a maritime router model that is common in yachts to get access to the internal network. (CVE-2017-17673)
Targeting Super or Mega Yachts in harbors or offshore could be a new threat for celebrities, if private informations from onboard are stolen.
Other threat could be to manipulate the Autopilot remotly.
Finaly i will present also SatCom devices with there security holes up to a command line interface.
