IoT devices are changing the world in both good and bad ways. It is exciting and fascinating to see how technology keeps improving our lives, but it is also worth considering the security impact and the vulnerabilities being introduced in our lives by such connected devices.


This talk will explore the risks associated with IoT devices by sharing a personal research performed on a cloud security camera. This talk will retrace all the steps that have been performed to go from hardware analysis and flash dumping, to zero-day discovery and exploitation.
