Hardware fault injection attacks for everyone

Language: English

Ever heard about glitching attacks, but it looked too much like black magic? Ever wanted to defeat the security settings locking away a microcontroller's debugging interface? In this workshop, you'll learn how to perform these dark arts yourself.

In this workshop, we'll first cover some theory behind fault injection attacks and voltage glitching in specific, and how the debug interface of our target (an RL78/G13) operates. Then we'll build a working glitching setup from a microcontroller, a few discrete components and a breadboard, which we will then use to defeat the security features of the target.

NOTE TO PARTICIPANTS: participating in this workshop will require flashing custom firmware on your camp badge (sorry). If you don't know how to do this, please contact me beforehand. (Alternatively, if you have a Raspberry Pico, you can bring one along, it should work, too.)

What's the maximum amount of participants you can host?


Is an extra payment required?

€8.5, does not need to be the same for every participant, I just want to recover the material costs (€170)
