IoT Penetration Testing Cookbook

By: Aaron Guzman, Aditya Gupta

Overview of this book

IoT is an upcoming trend in the IT industry today; there are a lot of IoT devices on the market, but there is a minimal understanding of how to safeguard them. If you are a security enthusiast or pentester, this book will help you understand how to exploit and secure IoT devices. This book follows a recipe-based approach, giving you practical experience in securing upcoming smart devices. It starts with practical recipes on how to analyze IoT device architectures and identify vulnerabilities. Then, it focuses on enhancing your pentesting skill set, teaching you how to exploit a vulnerable IoT device, along with identifying vulnerabilities in IoT device firmware. Next, this book teaches you how to secure embedded devices and exploit smart devices with hardware techniques. Moving forward, this book reveals advanced hardware pentesting techniques, along with software-defined, radio-based IoT pentesting with Zigbee and Z-Wave. Finally, this book also covers how to use new and unique pentesting techniques for different IoT devices, along with smart devices connected to the cloud. By the end of this book, you will have a fair understanding of how to use different pentesting techniques to exploit and secure various IoT devices.

Configuring continuous integration testing for firmware

Building firmware written in C/C++ can be a challenge for legacy products with complex Makefiles. Nevertheless, all source code should be statically analyzed for security vulnerabilities prior to deploying production builds. This recipe will show how to configure basic C/C++ static analysis for firmware in a continuous integration environment.

Getting ready

For this recipe, we will use the following application and tools:

  • Jenkins: This is an open source build automation server that can be customized to run quality and security code analysis. Jenkins can be downloaded via the following link There are various ways to install Jenkins depending on the operating system. For Debian and Ubuntu, the following commands can be used to install Jenkins:
wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -
  • Add the following line to  /etc/apt/sources.list:
