IoT Hackers Handbook: An Ultimate Guide to Hacking the Internet of Things and Learning IoT Security2017 has seen IoT devices being hacked like never before. We have seen attacks such as the Mirai Botnet, vulnerabilities in popular cars, hacking of IoT rifles, attackers taking advantage of smart toys and the list goes on. 

Everything is getting connected like never before, yet, security is one of the last thoughts during the product launch stage for most of the manufacturers.

This book can be treated as a special journey into mistakes which manufacturers make while building IoT devices, or the so-called “smart things”. 

The IoT Hackers Handbook is written in a beginner-friendly way covering everything from the extreme basics and then using exercises and labs to have the readers learn-by-doing.

Some of the contents that are covered in the book include: 

  • Embedded Device Exploitation Firmware Exploitation and Emulation 
  • Hardware communication protocols – UART, SPI etc. 
  • JTAG debugging and exploitation 
  • Software Defined Radio, ZigBee and BLE Exploitation 

After reading the book, you will be able to understand the various security vulnerabilities crippling the Internet of Things devices, and how you can play a significant role in identifying these security issues, thus making the IoT ecosystem safer.
