Course Description

Cyber Security and Embedded Systems Training bootcamp is a 4-day hands–on training covering advanced applications of Cyber Security to embedded systems to explore vulnerabilities that are commonly exploited.Secure Embedded Systems include many procedures, methods and techniques to seamlessly integrate cyber security within embedded system software and hardware.


This course covers methods and procedure to analyze, reverse, debug, and exploit embedded RTOS firmware. Hands-on experience with a variety of real-world devices, RTOS’s, and architectures equip students with the practical knowledge and skills necessary to be proficient in RTOS vulnerability analysis and exploitation. We will discuss risk assessment methodologies, failure analysis and using defensive tools to mitigate cyber risk and vulnerabilities. To assure successful mission control system performance, embedded systems such as weapon systems, missiles, smart weapons, Network Enabled Weapons (NEW), UAVs, communications systems, industrial control systems, smart grid, Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED), PLCs, must be secured to perform their intended functions, prevent cyber attacks, and operate with no cyber attack impact.
