With the growing use of IoT and embedded devices in critical infrastructure, ensuring the security of these devices has become more important than ever. As a result, penetration testers with knowledge of IoT and hardware hacking are in high demand.

In this guide, we will provide a comprehensive list of resources for those interested in learning more about hardware hacking and IoT security.

Understanding IoT and Hardware Hacking:

Before we delve into the resources, let’s first understand what IoT and hardware hacking are. Hardware refers to the physical components of a computer system or electronic device, while IoT refers to the network of connected devices that can communicate with each other over the internet. IoT devices often have the limited processing power, memory, and storage, which makes them more vulnerable to attacks. Hardware hacking refers to the process of manipulating the physical components of a device to gain unauthorized access or control.

Getting Started with Hardware Penetration Testing:

To get started with hardware hacking, we recommend checking out Adam Toscher’s two-part series on Hardware Penetration Testing. This guide provides a great introduction to hardware hacking, covering topics such as tools, techniques, and methodologies used by red teams to test hardware security.
