Schellman’s Hardware/IoT Penetration Testing Methodology
Our hardware hacking methodology involves the following steps:
1. Physical Inspection: We’ll perform a physical inspection of your device(s) and look for any obvious security weaknesses, such as open administration ports or accessible debugging interfaces.
2. Reverse Engineering: We’ll then disassemble the device and study its components and circuitry to gain a better understanding of its architecture and functionality through techniques such as tracing signals, decoding communications protocols, and analyzing firmware.
3. Identification of Attack Vectors: Based on what we’ve learned, we’ll identify potential attack vectors, such as insecure firmware updates, debug interfaces, or communications protocols.
4. Exploitation: Afterwards, we’ll develop and execute proof-of-concept attacks to demonstrate the identified vulnerabilities.
5. Analysis of Effects: Finally, we’ll study the effects of the exploitation, including any data leaks, unauthorized access, or system crashes. Our highly trained team will provide risk analysis for each issue identified as well as remediation guidance.
