MQTT, CoAP, and Building Secure Things presented at SourceBoston 2015

by Jack Mannino,

Summary : In this presentation we will explore two of the most commonly used IoT protocols, MQTT and CoAP. We will explore how they work, protocols they’re designed to work with, and common architectures. Attacks against the protocols and specific implementations will be demonstrated that can be used to impersonate other devices, knock systems offline, and potentially execute remote code. We will demonstrate how to mitigate these issues within your own code as well as library and framework issues to watch out for.
