This presentation will cover security research on Internet-connected devices targeting usage by, or for, children. Mark will discuss the vulnerabilities he found during this research, including account takeovers, device hijacking, backdoor credentials, unauthorized file downloading, and dangerously out-of-date protocols & software. Devices discussed will include Internet-connected baby monitors, a GPS-enabled platform to track children, and even a Wi-Fi & Bluetooth-connected stuffed animal.

Details about mobile reverse engineering, hardware hacking, network traffic analysis, and other research techniques will be presented to help others learn about methods to perform their own research.
