How to drift with any car

(without your mom yelling at you)
Saal Dijkstra
Lots of research are arising from the fairly unexplored world of automative communications. Cars are no longer becoming computers, they are fully connected networks where every ECU exchanges and operates the vehicles at some point. Here is an introduction of my immersion and discussions with my car, and how I finally managed to drift (a bit) with my mom's FWD Fiat 500c.

This talk is not only about security, but about hacking and video games. Many video games are about driving cars, whether it is for racing, or heisting and escaping the police. In this talk, we will explain how the user experience could actually be improved by connecting a car to a video game and turning it into a game controller.

We will discuss about these connected systems, how car components interact with one another, the different protocols, or anything that came to us during this journey.

However there was one important constraint during all that experience: no car could be dismantled nor modified. The main goal of this analysis was to try doing something out of the data which could be freely recovered while plugging itself to the OBD-II port of a car. As mentioned, this resulted in the possibility of controlling a video game car through the real car, like a simulator, without the need of modifying anything in the car itself.

Unfortunately, this requires a lot of gasoline to have the engine powered on and run. Moreover, gasoline is really expensive in France. So we looked for a way to reduce that cost. We actually found a nice device on the Internet to optimize the amount of gasoline used by the engine. Apparently, it works by connecting to the OBD-II port and reconfigures the engine’s ECU. We looked into that to understand what was actually going on… and try to reduce the cost of the drifting.

The following points will be mentioned during the presentation: ECUs CAN bus OBD-II (DTCs/PIDs) On-top-of-CAN protocols UDS (Diagnostic/Security session) Reverse engineering: the meanings of CAN messages Using a real car as a simulator, for poories Minor details about how to create a custom game controller OBD dongle reverse engineering

How I hacked Sasmung eMMC chips: from an indication that they have a firmware - up until code execution ability on the chip itself, relevant to a countless number of devices. It all started when Samsung Galaxy S3 devices started dying due to a bug in their eMMC firmware. I will cover how I figured out there's a firmware inside the chip, how I obtained it, and my journey to gaining code execution on the chip itself — up until the point in which I could grab a bricked Galaxy S3, and fix it ...

Wir retten das Klima mit Elektroautos — und bauen die Ladeinfrastruktur massiv aus. Leider werden dabei auch Schwachstellen auf allen Ebenen sichtbar: Von fehlender Manipulationssicherheit der Ladesäulen bis hin zu inhärent unsicheren Zahlungsprotokollen und kopierbaren Zahlkarten. Ladesäulenhersteller und Ladenetzbetreiber lassen ihre Kunden im Regen stehen — geht das schnelle Wachstum des Marktanteils zu Lasten der Kundensicherheit?

The Go implementation of the P-256 elliptic curve had a small bug due to a misplaced carry bit affecting less than 0.00000003% of field subtraction operations. We show how to build a full practical key recovery attack on top of it, capable of targeting JSON Web Encryption.

Year 2017 was rich in vulnerabilities discovered for Cisco networking devices. At least 3 vulnerabilities leading to a remote code execution were disclosed. This talk will give an insight on exploit development process for Cisco IOS for two of the mentioned critical vulnerabilities. Both lead to a full takeover of the target device. Both PowerPC and MIPS architectures will be covered. The presentation will feature an SNMP server exploitation demo.

Positive Technologies researchers Maxim Goryachy and Mark Ermolov have discovered a vulnerability that allows running unsigned code. The vulnerability can be used to activate JTAG debugging for the Intel Management Engine processor core. When combined with DCI, this allows debugging ME via USB.

This talk presents the technical details and the process of reverse engineering and re-implementation of the evasi0n7 jailbreak's main kernel exploit. This work was done in late 2013, early 2014 (hence the "archaeology" in the title), however, it will provide insight into the kernel debugging setup for iOS devices (iDevices), the encountered difficulties and how they were overcome, all of which can be useful for current iOS kernel vulnerability research.

Do you want to learn how modern binary code obfuscation and deobfuscation works? Did you ever encounter road-blocks where well-known deobfuscation techniques do not work? Do you want to see a novel deobfuscation method that learns the code's behavior without analyzing the code itself? Then come to our talk and we give you a step-by-step guide.
