Hardware Hacking: Identifying Components

I started the Make Me Hack channel with the series Hardware Hacking Tutorial and with the first episode about Identifying Components.

This series is to share information on how to do hardware hacking and how to do reverse engineering. The series is useful both for beginners and experts.

Hardware Hacking will be described with practical hacking activities on real devices following a process based on:

  1. Information gathering of hardware and software
  2. Building an emulation environment where to run interesting binaries and reverse engineer them, if needed
  3. Analyzing how the device works
  4. Hack the device and modify its firmware

In this first episode we will talk about how to identify the device, the manufacturer and the Original Design Manufacturer and how to identify the integrated circuits inside the device using some tips to read part numbers when they seems unreadable.
