  • TALK:  Case Studies in Invasive Embedded Device Forensics: Evidence Extraction and Firmware Verification
    SPEAKER: Sujeet Shenoi (University of Tulsa, USA)  
    ABSTRACT: This presentation describes various electronic, physical and chemical techniques for extracting data and firmware from embedded devices. The techniques range from basic non-invasive techniques to sophisticated invasive techniques using chip desoldering and chemical etching or laser ablation to expose bond wires inside chip packages and extract data. Several case studies related to evidence extraction from embedded devices are presented. Also, case studies dealing with the extraction and verification of firmware in suspected supply chain compromises are presented.

11:00h Discussion


Sujeet Shenoi is the F.P. Walter Professor of Computer Science and a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Tulsa, Tulsa, Oklahoma; and a member of the technical staff at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Maryland. An active researcher with specialties in cyber security, cyber operations, critical infrastructure protection and digital forensics, Dr. Shenoi works on exciting “problems” ranging from helping solve homicides to penetrating telecommunications systems, oil and gas pipelines, wind farms and voting machines. Dr. Shenoi is the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Critical Infrastructure Protection (Elsevier); and Editor of the Advances in Digital Forensics and Critical Infrastructure Protection (Springer) series, now in their thirteenth and eleventh volumes, respectively. He spearheads the University of Tulsa's elite Cyber Corps Program that trains “MacGyvers” for U.S. government agencies, and is the Director of the Cyber Security Education Consortium, a National Science Foundation ATE Center that is building a high-tech workforce in the Southwestern United States. For his innovative strategies integrating academics, research and service, Dr. Shenoi was named the 1998-1999 U.S. Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation.
