Bio-Hacking: Implantable chip attack vector presented at BSidesLasVegas 2015

by Rod Soto, Seth Wahle,

Summary : Implantable electronic devices are becoming more common nowadays. Specifically subdermal implants are now being used in companies for employee identification, security access, medical records and authentication among other uses. These implantable devices can easily bypass current security check procedures in most enterprises as they are located inside the body of a human. A live demo of mobile exploitation using an implanted RFID chip into a subject's hand will be performed during this presentation. This proof of concept aims to show the possibilities of use of implantable devices as attack vectors.
