Embedded Hardware Acquisition & Analysis Training

Debuting at Mobile Forensics World 2018

Teel Technologies’ Embedded Hardware Acquisition & Analysis Training focuses on processes that can be used to access digital data at the physical level. Data can be extracted from any device that utilizes a mainboard, controller chip and some form of flash memory such as:

  • IOT devices Smart TV’s
  • Vehicle systems
  • Drones
  • Skimmers/shimmers

The processes taught will include tools from cost effective sources, open source resources and commercial tools. Students will learn how to apply techniques from JTAG, ISP and Chipoff to embedded communication protocols such as SPI, i2C, CAN-Bus, UART and more. Components can then be exploited and data can be recovered from various sources like embedded code and the flash memory of controller chips. Data from these sources can then be analyzed for evidence or malware artifacts.

Students will be provided with a foundation on how the electronics used in this course work and how they are related to the techniquest addressed in this training.
