BioHacking: Implantable Chip Attack Vector presented at HackMiami 2015

by Rod Soto, Seth Wahle,

Summary : Implantable electronic devices will allow hackers to breach the security of networks, infrastructure and personal electronics. These purpose built implantable devices will be nearly undetectable via currently available personnel scanning and searching devices and techniques. For proof of concept an implantable near-field communications chip was used to compromise Android devices. This simple device could however be used to compromise a wide array of devices and systems. The entire process of using an implantable chip as attack vector to compromise a device will be shown in this presentation.
