Get Hands-On with Tech Tuesday Workshops

Tech_Tuesday_Workshop_v2.jpg

Want to see Live Online in action? SANS is launching a new series of free workshops available in the Live Online platform, held every other Tuesday with our top instructors. These workshops are two-hour hands-on virtual environments that give you the opportunity to dive into the material and start trying out tools and techniques that are useful and relevant in focus areas across cybersecurity.

The upcoming workshops are listed out below and will feature the same platform, TA support, and Slack channel benefits that you would get in a Live Online environment. We recommend bookmarking this page and checking back frequently, as we’ll be adding more in the days and weeks to come. 

Due to the nature of these workshops, many have a capacity limit and will not be made available for archive. To help us offer this opportunity to as many people as possible, we are asking that you please only register if you plan to attend live.

Hacking IoT: Fun with Firmware

Tuesday, November 17th, 2020 at 6:00pm – 8:00pm EDT (23:00 UTC)
Duration: 2 Hours
Larry Pesce

Join us for a fun session of analyzing firmware for a random IoT device, as a sneak peek at the upcoming SEC556: IoT Hacking course! In this workshop we’ll learn the gory details of what goes into analyzing the operating system (firmware) for IoT devices. We’ll walk through the process, introduce some tools, challenges, tips and tricks. Heck, we’ll even do one live to see if we can discover any problems (oh, we will), and provide you the firmware to play along and even give you a few extra samples to tinker with!

System Requirements: If you would like to follow along or explore on your own, you’ll need a system with binwalk installed (https://github.com/ReFirmLabs/binwalk). The most recent version of a Slingshot VM (https://www.sans.org/slingshot-vmware-linux/) is recommended.

Prerequisites: Basic Linux skills.

*Please note that this WILL NOT be recorded. Due to the hands-on nature of these workshops, many have a capacity limit and will not be made available for archive. To help us offer this opportunity to as many people as possible, we are asking that you please only register if you plan to attend live.
