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.

I would like to dedicate this book to the entire Infosec community - the breakers, makers and the tinkerers. The ones who find vulnerabilities, and the ones who fix them. The Red, Blue, and Purple teams. Don’t let the passion die and pass the knowledge to the n00bs, which we were once, and maybe still are. Special thanks to the entire team at Packt - Deepti, Nilesh, and team. Without your constant effort and dedication, this book would not have been a reality.
