  • Zigbee Hacking: Smarter Home Invasion with ZigDiggity

    Sunday from 10:00 – 11:50 in Sunset 2 at Planet Hollywood
    Audience: Offense, Hardware, Product, IoT, Zigbee, Zigbee Hacking Francis Brown & Matt Gleason

    Do you feel safe in your home with the security system armed? You may reconsider after watching a demo of our new hacking toolkit, ZigDiggity, where we target door & window sensors using an "ACK Attack". ZigDiggity will emerge as the weapon of choice for testing Zigbee-enabled systems, replacing all previous efforts. Zigbee continues to grow in popularity as a method for providing simple wireless communication between devices (i.e. low power/traffic, short distance), & can be found in a variety of consumer products that range from smart home automation to healthcare. Unfortunately, existing Zigbee hacking solutions have fallen into disrepair, having barely been maintained, let alone improved upon. Left without a practical way to evaluate the security of Zigbee networks, we've created ZigDiggity, a new open-source pentest arsenal from Bishop Fox. Updates include migration to better hardware for testing (e.g. SDRs), and a slew of newly implemented Zigbee attacks types. Our DEMO-rich presentation showcases ZigDiggity's attack capabilities by pitting it against common Internet of Things (IoT) products that use Zigbee. Come experience the future of Zigbee hacking, in a talk that the New York Times will be hailing as "a veritable triumph of the human spirit." ... ya know, probably
