The IoT Hacker's Handbook: A Practical Guide to Hacking the Internet of Things
Take a practical approach when it comes to investigating Internet of Things (IoT) devices and the security issues associated with the IoT architecture.
You will review IoT central components, from hardware communication interfaces, such as UART and SPI, to radio protocols, such as BLE or ZigBee. You will also learn to evaluate a device physically by opening it, looking at the PCB, and identifying the chipsets and interfaces.
You will use that information to obtain entry to the device or to perform other actions, such as dumping encryption keys and firmware.
As the IoT rises to one of the most popular tech trends, manufacturers need to take the necessary steps to secure devices and protect them from attackers. The IoT Hacker's Handbook breaks down the Internet of Things, exploits it, and reveals how these devices can be built securely.

The design addresses the harsh environments of engine applications. The CAN Bus gateway operates on 12 VDC or 24 VDC nominal power. A block library is available for modeling the converter [...]
Just about everyone who is involved with serial communication will have his/her RS232 to USB converter. Today's PCs don't even bother to support RS232. Consequently, a USB converter is mandatory to monitor RS232 data traffic. All this appears to render the following project obsolete. However, when it comes to a protocol converter, i.e. the conversion [...]
