Security Assessment of ZigBee Protocol presented at SyScan360 2015

by Li Jun,

Summary : In the era of Internet of things (IOT) more and more objects need wireless connection. ZigBee has become the most widely adopted wireless communication protocol due to its traits like low power consumption、low complexity、low cost、self-organizing etc. Various IOT devices have been using ZigBee, to name a few, water valves、gas valves、burglar alarm system、wireless sensor network、smart home system.
Due to its ubiquitous application, the ZigBee protocol is worthy of intensive security research. In this talk, the author will demonstrate how to hack ZigBee enabled devices, talk about the intrinsic vulnerabilities exist in the ZigBee standard, and finally, offer some advices on how to deploy ZigBee application more securely.
