  • Reverse Engineer Challege

    Kits go on sale Friday morning and run till they are gone!

    Get a kit and figure it out! Kits are $5, exact change required, sales tax included in price (Yes, we have to state that). Any money given above the kit price will be donated directly to EFF! Sales per person will be limited within reason.

  • Robo-Sumo

    1300 - 1500

    HHV was started when 1057 went around giving some robots out and sitting down with a group to assemble them. This event is open to all who want to bring (or hack together) a bot. Rules to be posted.

  • Solder Challege

    While Open and supplies last

    It is back! Here is your chance to put your soldering skills to the test. This year there are three challenge types - Size, Repair, and Knowledge. You can choose which challenges to do. All are timed and a leader board will be kept through out the Con.

  • Table Exercises

    While Open

    Want to send a few minutes picking up a new skill or testing an existing one. These exercises are meant to span the skill range and provide new and old something to walk in and do.

Workshops / Demos

  • Component Desoldering and Recovery

    Times:

    1100
    1600

    Come to the HHV and learn the skills required for desoldering and reclaiming PCB components. If you are already familiar with this process, then take some time to brush up on your skills. Each session is roughly an hour long and will cover: introduction, safety, conventional vs. RoHS practices, and then hands on component recovery. These sessions are first come first served at the time of start, so come early and get your learn on! No tools or equipment required!

  • VoIP phone hacking

    Times:

    1200-1300
    1700-1800

    What would you do if you could get root on your voice over ip phone? Can you reverse engineer your way to the secret message we left there and win some swag?

    A dozen VoIP phone running our challenge will be available on a first came first served basis. Come and learn with us the basics of embedded hacking. We.ll see how to identify the chips on board, dump the flash to access the filesystem and then reverse the challenge application. Try to solve the challenge yourself or follow along and learn with us.

Saturday 29th

Operating hours: 1000 - 2000

Talks

  • Ardusploit - Proof of concept for Arduino code injection

    Cesare Pizzi
    Time: 1100

    Village Talk Track (just outside Contest Area)

    Ardusploit - Arduino code injection: the aim of the project is to create a proof of concept for code injection with Arduino (Atmel) MCU. We'll review a custom python script built to automate the process of injecting some code in a working sketch, leaving the previous functionalities untouched. Without having access to the sources, it will dump the content of the Arduino flash memory, it will inject the code (blinking LED as an example) and then it will reload the code on the board.

  • What is Ground? (Baby don't hurt me)

    Gigs Taggart
    Time: 1200

    Village Talk Track (just outside Contest Area)

    When starting out in electronics, many people have a hard time grasping what "ground" really is. It is not uncommon to still have misunderstandings among more experienced hackers either. This talk starts out with some basic info and dives in to more advanced grounding topics that aims to be informative to engineers of all ages.

  • Hardware Hacking: Old Sk00l and New Sk00l

    hwbxr
    Time: 1300

    Village Talk Track (just outside Contest Area)

    Let's examine how Hardware Hacking has evolved over the decades. As the technology and tools available to us have changed, so have the ways in which we explore and exploit electronic systems. The current IoT era of incredible integration and connectivity is a truly exciting time to be delving into electronics and hardware hacking. Complex SoC (system-on-a-chip) solutions like in the Raspberry Pi or in the the new ESP32 are tiny an inexpensive, yet provide impressive processing power and support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and more. Our demo will include the ESP32 SoC integrated with a QVGA full-color display to implement a totally hackable, wearable, multimode wireless system. Hardware Hacking has always challenged us to doing more with less. See how to .overload. this simple demo hardware for packet sniffing, classic video game play, and wireless tag. You.re it!

  • A Tangle of Plastic Spaghetti: A Look Into the Security of 3D Printers

    John Dunlap
    Time: 1500

    Village Talk Track (just outside Contest Area)

    While 3D Printers are becoming ever more ubiquitous, security models for 3D printers are still in their infancy. Despite the printers containing dangerous - even deadly functionality, printers are poorly protected from potential adversaries. In this talk security concerns dealing with 3D printers will be discussed, including hardware, firmware, and control software security.

  • Embedded Programming with Black Magic and the Lights On

    Time:

    1400

    Developing embedded firmware using Open Source tools is usually associated with arranging furniture in a dark room with the lights off. In this self directed workshop you will be able learn and experiment with an ARM Microcontroller and a JTAG debugger. The JTAG debugger allows you to shed light on what is happening inside the ARM microcontroller when you are running your program. Step, halt, watch variables and much more. This workshop is based on the 1BitSy STM32F405 development board and the Black Magic Probe Mini V2.1 JTAG/SWD debugger with built in GDB server. Both were designed to work transparent with common open source tools and minimal abstractions, making the understanding of what is happening in the system simple. When things go south you don't want to spend hours peeling back the layers of abstraction. You don't need to bring anything, all necessary hardware will be provided.
