I released the second episode of the series Hardware Hacking Tutorialin the Make Me Hack YouTube channel. This episode is about “How To Find The UART Interface”.
The Hardware Hacking Tutorial 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.
In this episode I will talk about how the find tue UART interface on an IoT device; I will take an home router (Gemtek WVRTM-127ACN) and show how to find the UART interface using simple tools like a multi-meter and using more advanced tools like a JTagulator board.… Read the rest
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:
- Information gathering of hardware and software
- Building an emulation environment where to run interesting binaries and reverse engineer them, if needed
- Analyzing how the device works
- 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.… Read the rest
