Practical IoT Hacking

release date: Apr 09, 2021
Practical IoT Hacking
Written by all-star security experts, Practical IoT Hacking is a quick-start conceptual guide to testing and exploiting IoT systems and devices. Drawing from the real-life exploits of five highly regarded IoT security researchers, Practical IoT Hacking teaches you how to test IoT systems, devices, and protocols to mitigate risk. The book begins by walking you through common threats and a threat modeling framework. You’ll develop a security testing methodology, discover the art of passive reconnaissance, and assess security on all layers of an IoT system. Next, you’ll perform VLAN hopping, crack MQTT authentication, abuse UPnP, develop an mDNS poisoner, and craft WS-Discovery attacks. You’ll tackle both hardware hacking and radio hacking, with in-depth coverage of attacks against embedded IoT devices and RFID systems.
