2019 National Cyber Summit

Jeremy Conway, Chief Technology Officer, MAD Security and Scott Busby, Security Engineer, MAD Security

Conway talks about the IoT, vulnerability exploitations on IoT devices. He spent one week and $100 to prepare for this talk. The first thing he did was to go to Amazon and type in IoT. The first thing that popped up were Smart Plugs. The demo explained how he found the vulnerabilities. First he decrypted the AES Encryption UDP traffic to produce command and packet structure required to control the device. The application then sends a confirmation number to confirm the request was true. Replying to the request with the confirmation number executes the given command. Then wrote a Python script to automate the request. Mapped out the testing results.
