Summary : Abstract: Over the last few years, the USB has been gaining traction in the security field as it is a relatively unexplored attack vector. Unfortunately, most of the tools available for fuzzing or attacking this protocol involve being in an emulated environment or building some moderately complex hardware device. This talk will present a new alternative to the existing methods that is both flexible and simple -- while also exploring some of the internals of the USB protocol.
