Modern embedded systems are ubiquitous and highly interconnected, from smart home electronics and wearables to networking equipment, automotive systems, medical devices and industrial control systems, they permeate all aspects of everyday life. Over the past years we've seen an explosion in threats against such systems, ranging from IoT botnets infecting routers and CCTV cameras to to dangerous attacks on critical infrastructure. It has also become increasingly clear that many embedded systems lag years, if not decades, behind in terms of security and are often vulnerable to issues that can be simultaneously trivial to exploit and hard to remediate. This talk aims to present a big picture introduction to the security issues facing connected embedded systems. We will touch upon the relevant threat landscape and discuss common vulnerabilities as well as some high-level hardening strategies and the unique challenges faced by embedded systems security engineers.
